Tanzania Broadcaster Suspends Nine Staff Over Fake Trump News

Tanzanian public broadcaster TBC has suspended nine staff after it aired a hoax story saying that US President Donald Trump had praised President John Magufuli's performance. The article appeared on a website called Fox Channel.

The story, which was broadcast last week, said Mr Trump called Mr Magufuli an "African hero" compared to other leaders who are "doing nothing".

A statement from TBC later confirmed that editorial procedures had not been followed. But why will anyone do that?
