Kambi bans Middle East countries from hiring Kenyan workers

29 September 2014, 15:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Labour Secretary Kazungu Kambi has banned employment agencies sourcing jobs for Kenyans in the Middle East.

Kambi has revoked the firms' licences over the mistreatment of Kenyan workers in the region, following repeated complaints in the last couple of months.

He said that the firms would be forced to re-apply for the licences in order to stem out middle men who contrive to mistreat Kenyans.

" We need them to be serious about what they do. We will not allow them to take Kenyans out there and mistreat them, he said in his office Monday.

Previously, the government has banned the agencies, also stemming from the mistreatment of Kenyans in the United Arab Emirates UAE in 2012.

Kambi also called on the conclusion of Memorandum of Understanding between Kenya and Middle Eastern Countries to ensure the dignity of Kenyans is retained.
