rabat - The Moroccan king Mohammed VI fired several ministers and senior officials on Tuesday following the protests in the port city of Al Hoceima, which were protracted by the protracted policies. According to Marokko World News, among others, the government officials of Education, Health and Housing, who were also part of the former Cabinet of Prime Minister Benkirane, have been relieved of disfunctioning their positions.

Earlier this year, protesters crowded the streets to show their indignation about the tragic death of a fisherman. This was drowned in a garbage truck when he tried to save his catch. That was seized by the authorities, allegedly abused by abuse and corruption. The predominantly peaceful protest not only focused on the government but also called for attention in the northern region's poverty.

The orders went on and arrested the suspected leaders of the protests. The king ordered an investigation into the conduct. Early this month, the findings have been reported and that were convincing enough for Mohamed to intervene.
