Tanzania’s government has expelled the top official of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the country, the foreign ministry has said.

It ordered Awa Dabo, a Gambian who is the UNDP’s country director in the East African state, to leave because her relationship with some of her staff had become strained, resulting in the organisation’s performance in Tanzania deteriorating, it added in a statement. 

The ministry said it wanted to remind the UNDP to work with the government to achieve its development goals in the East African state.   

The UNDP has not yet commented.
