President’s Office’s Chief of Staff Ali Zahir is in hot waters due to an explicit tweet he made today.
A tweet from Ali Zahir’s account criticized Speaker Mohamed Nasheed and said President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih was a patient man, who continued to run his administration despite the involvement of “people like you”.
However, the tweet in question was deleted after approximately 10 minutes. Ali Zahir tweeted that his account was compromised and he did not tweeted the statement.
Ali Zahir said that his account has now been re-secured with extra measures, and that he has filed a complaint with the police over the incident.
