Kenia prohibit ONG`s employing foreigners
16 February, 2017duguech
The Government of Kenya has recently reported that it prohibits NGOs from hiring expatriates to boost the recruitment of local staff. This is a measure that seeks to promote national talent and reduce the unemployment rate among Kenyans. The ban has been taken into account, since the percentage of foreign contracts is higher than recommended.
North American and European workers who work in Africa through NGOs must follow the provisions in the face of these legislative changes, as Senegal did a few years ago. In addition, Kenya is stricter in this regard, as foreign workers are struggling to renew their visas despite spending years in the country.
