Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum conducted an unannounced inspection of some government offices and found out that some top employees were absent. According to local media reports, the inspection was to send a message.
From the videos shared via Instagram, the Sheikh is seen casually moving around a deserted office with empty seats, picking up a book and flicking through it.
The next day, the retirement of nine members of Dubai Municipality’s executive management, including directors and assistant director-generals in departments such as legal affairs and planning, was announced.
Sheikh Mohammed reportedly thanked the nine retired officials for their service but said he wanted to allow a new generation of young leaders to take control and provide top-quality services to the public.
