All the other RD news outlets have little information. His dismissal may have something to do with rumors about Ministry of Education tenders. Nothing more than that, all is vague. His being apppointed Minister of State without Portfolio keeps him on the gov’t payroll is a kindness until an investigation is completed to confirm or not confirm rumors.

He should be ousted from government all together! News article shows cows being pastured in an abandoned school building that was recently built. Greed is endemic amongst politicians.

As president Luis Abinader said: ‘corruption won’t be tolerated in this administration’.
