Government secures abroad jobs for select UoN graduates

An unknown number of Midwifery graduates from the University of Nairobi (UoN) are set to be absorbed into various organizations in Oman after Kenya struck a deal with the Gulf country.

This was revealed by Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Korir Sing’oei who said that Kenya’s Foreign Affairs team in Muscat facilitated the agreement.

“Glad to announce significant developments in Kenya-Oman relations. Yesterday, Omani authorities granted recognition of certification issued by the University of Nairobi, paving the way for the recruitment of graduates holding Bachelor of Midwifery from the University into Public health facilities in Oman,” Sing’oei said in a statement on Friday.

“Thank you, our team in Muscat for structuring and delivering this deal. More Kenyan universities, both public and private, to follow suit,” he added.

The job opportunities are part of the government’s commitment to secure employment opportunities for Kenyans abroad.

“We are intentional on creating additional opportunities for young people in Kenya to work. It is also the reason why we are reorganizing labour migration, why we are signing bilateral labour agreements because it is my intention that every year, we should be able to send 250,000 Kenyans to work in different parts of the world,” president Ruto who spoke on Labour Day at the Uhuru Gardens, Nairobi said.

Ruto said an increased population of Kenyan workforce abroad would also have a ripple effect such that Diaspora remittances would increase and spur development back home.

“I’m very happy that from last year to this year, we have increased our remittances by about Sh50 billion and it’s my intention that in the next five years, we should take our remittances from $4 billion (Sh524bn) to $10 billion (Sh1.3 trillion),” he added.
