President Donald Trump has sacked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, a day after the US top diplomat left Nairobi.

According to Washington Post, President Trump had last Friday asked Tillerson to step aside, and the embattled top diplomat cut short his trip to Africa on Monday to return to Washington.

He will be replaced with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Tillerson left Kenya on Monday after a three-day visit that saw him meet President Uhuru Kenyatta and other officials.

He was headed to Chad.
