Uganda bans under-qualified foreign workers

(Daily Monitor) New immigration guidelines ban international and local NGOs operating in the country from employing foreigners unless they show proof that no Ugandan matches the skills of the expatriate staff.

 

This is to ensure that the right and desirable immigrants enter the country and jobs for locals in Africa are retained. It is alleged that the NGOS receive donations for humanitarian causes and employ their own workers.

 

Better-qualified Ugandan employees sometimes lose jobs to unqualified or under-qualified and overpaid staff. The health sector is especially vulnerable due to unqualified or incompetent staff and those working without suitable work permits.
