Casper, You're Fired

Earlier this year, the Nigerian government removed nearly 24,000 "ghost workers" from its payroll.

Now it's Mali's turn. They've identified 13,000 "ghost workers" on the state payroll. These are workers who died or left to work elsewhere but continued to collect checks.

It's not clear to me whether these non-workers had not previously identified because of incompetence or corruption. They are being purged now because of a requirement for Mali's program with the IMF.
