Egypt sacks heads of state silo company, Internal Trade Development Agency

 Egypt's new supply minister has sacked the chairman of the Egyptian Holding Company for Silos and Storage and the head of the country's Internal Trade Development Agency, the state-owned MENA news agency reported on Sunday.

The minister, Major General Mohamed El-Sheikh, said the changes were intended to bring in new blood to develop and drive forward the ministry's companies and departments.
 
El-Sheikh was appointed earlier this month after his predecessor Khaled Hanafi stepped down under pressure from parliament, which has launched an investigation into allegations that millions in wheat subsidy funds were pocketed by ministry officials.
