Trump sacks Tillerson as state secretary
Rex Tillerson has been fired as US secretary of state just a week after he was in the country and held meetings with president Uhuru Kenyatta and other government officials.
US President Donald Trump announced that CIA Director Mike Pompeo will replace him as the United State's top diplomat.
Tillerson had to cut short his week long tour of Africa to attend to pressing matters in Washington, but a state department official claimed Tillerson did not know he would be fired.
