Unless Ministry of Labour is given a big say when granting work permits in the country, the problem of foreigners being employed at the expense of locals will still escalate.
Deputy Minister of Labour, Vera Kamtukule said this during interviews on Tuesday when she officially opened the capacity building workshop of TEVET training instructors in Assessment Skills at Malawi Sun Hotel in Blantyre.
â€śIt is our Ministry that knows which expertise we donâ€™t have locally. We are working with the Departments of Immigration and Internal Security to address this issue. â€śWe wonder why we should have foreigners working as security guards, receptionists and labourers when our people are unemployed and can also do these jobs,â€ť she said.
Acting Executive Director for TEVETA, Modesto Gomani said the training offered instructors the required knowledge on assessment with the aim of improving the quality of assessment of learners.
