No more leaving Malawi for jobs outside the country

134

Following cases of abuse and violence in that Malawian citizens have met in Kuwait, Malawi government has issues a strong warning to all agents that recruit people from Malawi to work abroad.

Malawi government says international recruitment agents are fuelling rates of human trafficking in the country and has warned the agents that they will be arrested once found.

The development follows reports of Malawians being abused once they are recruited by agents to work abroad.

Further reports revealed that Malawians are changed from their job recruited to worse jobs in other countries.

Patrick Kabambe made the revelations.

Among the jobs, women are forced to work in brothels where they work as sex workers while men are pushed to be dealers of dangerous drugs.

Reacting on the matter, government has warned agents behind recruitment of Malawians that they will be charged with human trafficking once they are seen to breach labour laws of Malawi.

In a statement released on Thursday and signed by Principal Secretary for Labour and Manpower Development Patrick Kabambe, government has demanded agents to submit “terms and conditions” to the Malawi labour office before they recruit people.

The statement has also disclosed that government will be visiting Malawians abroad to ensure that they are not abused once they are working in foreign countries.

For the past years, Malawians have been reported to have been in job search across the sea due to high unemployment rate in Malawi.

However, reports reveal that job seekers are subjected to inhuman treatment once they are flown to foreign lands.

  20. This the worst leadership malawians have witnessed.GOD please do not forsake us,like you did with the Israelites in the wilderness protect us oh! Dear Lord from these wolves in sheep’s skins pretending to be good shepards but they are leading us astray.They pretend to be wise but they dont ask you for wisdom.

  21. The problem are we people because what I know is if want job you have to go and look for it not someone to tell you there is job somewhere and I want to send you there yet the one telling you that is not even your relative and myself agree and go as far as kuwait?

  22. This is bullshit, nonsense just dont say it again. U cant force people to do what u want, let them choose themselves. To running dangerous businesses is there choice. My comment is hell NO!!! u cant change things to become better while u still restening yourself.

  26. Abuse dose not stop malawians working abroad…check the measures very well they have to go out and learn faster ….world has move faster and needed only knowledge to drive good economy … How do you learn if you lock your self inside the room …noway …best thing to do is let many youths be send out to learn…as the work …too many relaxe kills economy. If 1 millon malawians are working abroad and send $1 per a month its $1m , if the return $10 it $10m , if they rerturn $ 100 is $100m just mutiply it in a year it can help drive economy… Teach them how to do before sending them out… Abuse is every where even more in malawi … Some of the other african contries are working in farms in some western countries and they are doing well …. If someone abuse me while working for them i will report to my embassy or police…i cant decide to come back to malawi just because am abused… Money is neede to live a good life…so first endure the hard job for some times … And change your family back home. Please my advise is that those abuse over there should not be sending back home ,which job can they find…. $100 salary is nothing in todays malawi. Their are too many countries working in middle east .. If the abuse you at home spesk out their, not calling back home…we need to grow not everyday a baby… There are labour laws over there please too much complaning cant help… Work and send money back to malawi thats what is needed. Goverment cannot give every youth job… If you dont have good education and your working as house help how can you be expected to treat like a medical doctor… Please dont come back here with out making money… Goverment should find more jobs abroad please we need more youths to travel abroad… Look at golden peacock hotel yesterday, job of less than 60 people needed…was attended by over 3000 job seekers. Let the agents that organise this jpb plan it well that at least every three months they should call the person to know how he or she is doing ….from there they will know what is going on ..thanks

  27. Government must be blamed for these no job poverty ,prostitution,disease ,curruption that’s why people find themselves in hard situation like these unless there’s must be solution for these.people have lost hope in our government .

    • Sometimes, try to do your own research, before you comment, and try not to criticise the Government of today for what you got no knowledge at all.

    • Then why are you here in RSA doing what because our coutry is poor in time of Kamudzu Malawi was better and prosperity for all not individually we talking about majority no %10 ,even now kwacha got no value and I now the truth bro

    • One thing you have to know is that our country is a Land locked, with no any mineral resources and no Government of whose administration will turn things around, not in your life time. Wake up and open your eyes, young manKennedy Mtwela

  28. Aaaaaa!!!!does’nt sound good,its personaly not for gvt.who can wish to live in Malawi whilst there is wide door outside the way kwacha is downfalling evertday?Dont bother yoself Mw gvt for this&if u close the door we got a master key we will open.

  31. K k k k k k nambo kwelekoo! simunamalize kukambilana nkhani za anthu omwe akuchitira nkhanza ntundu wachi Albino mwayambaso ina. When they’re going to south African do they take money from the government? Dziwani kuti anthu omwe mukuwanenawo ndiomwe akupanga chitukuko kumalawi kuno.

  32. Every where in the world people are migrating in search of greener pasture, even in German, France, Canada, USA China, if you can find a German doctor working in UAE what is he looking for??? A Japanese engineer working in China what is he looking for, Egyptian lawyer working in India what is he looking for??? Nde ku malawi mukhala oyamba kupanga zimenezo

  33. bomalizinena kuti ilo lasiya kupempha zithandizo za ntchito kwa anthu awo kunja koma wakufuna kwayekha asamulese apite basi akawone kusintha ku malawi ntchito zikusowananga
