Transitional prime minister in Burkina Faso has replaced two ministers, only two weeks after the formation of a new government.

The minister for industry and trade, as well as the one in charge of lands and housing, were replaced through a decree read out on national television on Wednesday.

Donatien Nagalo’s appointment as trade minister of Burkina Faso had faced opposition from traders’ associations, who accused him of malpractices as a former head of the country’s national union of traders.

He has now been replaced by an executive of BCEAO, Serge Gnaniodem Poda.
