Malawian youths will soon afford a smile as government says it is working on a legal framework that will help youths to find jobs outside the country.
Minister of labour and manpower development Henry Mussa said government will soon conclude working on the framework.
”Government has directed that there should be a legal framework which will provide labour migrants a chance to work in other countries like Saudi Arabia,” said Mussa.
He added that countries like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are interested to recruit skilled labourers from Malawi.
Mussa further said that the ministry is working with other ministries such as local government, the ministry of justice and the ministry of foreign affairs in making the final touches on the legal framework.
Most youths in the country prefer to travel to foreign countries to seek greener pastures.
Last year, there were xenophobic attacks in South Africa that led to the deaths of seven people while 213 were people injured.
However, reports show that Malawians are still trekking south to seek greener pastures in the rainbow nation.
