14,000 Saudis Quit Gov’t Jobs 

Nearly 14,000 employees of Saudi ministries and government organizations submitted their resignations within the last seven months, with the education sector the worst hit, Arabian Business reported. A total of 5,339 teachers, representing 38% of those in employment, quit their jobs during the time period, reports claimed. Additionally, eight judges submitted their resignations to the judiciary, while 2,025 employees of the Bureau of Investigation resigned. The figures were released by the Ministry of Civil Services, which also showed that 28% of the employees who resigned were women. The reasons for quitting ranged from resignation, firing or dismissal to voluntary retirement, the report added. Recently, the sacked head of a hospital in Jeddah has reportedly claimed he was used as a scapegoat. Authorities said Hammad Shogaa was fired as director of King Fahd Hospital because of a cockroach infestation. But Shogaa told local media the cockroaches had been there for 15 years and he had alerted the health ministry five months ago.
