Zambians have been asked to stop sharing the video

Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu has fired Education Minister David Mabumba with immediate effect.
In a statement released by Mr Lungu’s spokesperson Isaac Chipampe, no reason was given for the dismissal.
However, earlier in the morning, videos of a man who looks like him went viral. The man was naked and masturbating.
Mr Mabumba, who previously also served as energy minister, has neither commented on the videos nor the dismissal.
He has been replaced at the ministry of education by Dennis Wanchinga.
Police say they are investigating the matter while the National Guidance Affairs Minister Reverend Godfridah Sumaili has urged the public to stop circulating the video.
Ms Sumaili has told the local media it is unethical and immoral for people to continue circulating the video.
But that has not stopped the social media frenzy.

Liberia's foreign minister to stand against only female senator

Gbehzohngar Milton Findley will stand for the position of senator in Grand Bassa

Liberia's influential minister of foreign affairs has resigned in order to take on the lone female member of the senate in December’s senatorial elections.
Gbehzohngar Milton Findley will stand against Nyunblee Karnga Lawrence, the only woman in the 30-member senate.
Mr Findley has been hurriedly selected as the choice of the ruling party of President George Weah.
Representing Liberia’s second oldest county, Grand Bassa, in the senate, Mrs Lawrence lost her husband, a Member of the House of Representatives, two years ago in a road accident.
Equal rights activists are concerned there's a possibility Liberia will return to the tradition of having an all-male senate - something they say will not bode well for Mr Weah’s claim of being a "feminist-in-chief" fighting for women’s political participation.
