Hope Dashed As Only 10 out of 300 Kenyan Nurses preparing for UK Pass IELTS by Peculiar005: Wed Oct 2021 07:11pm
Kenya’s Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has decried the failure of health workers to pass English language tests required for United Kingdom jobs.

Jobless Kenyan nurses and other health workers recently got a chance to work in the UK as part of a new scheme requested by Kenya this year.

The unemployed health workers were meant to serve in the UK’s National Health Service before returning to work in Kenya.

But CS Kagwe revealed on Wednesday that only a minority of those who applied qualified for the jobs.

“Out of 300 health workers sent for an English language test only 10 passed. We had negotiated for clinical workers for job exports but this turn of events is unfortunate,” he said.

He then urged health workers to work hard to pass the employment standards set for jobs abroad.

Speaking during the Kenya Clinical Officers Association scientific conference in the coastal city of Mombasa, Mr Kagwe said that despite this, the government will continue to negotiate for Kenyan health workers to work in Europe and the Middle East.

He also refuted claims that the government has resorted to exporting its labour workforce abroad instead of employing them.

“This is a rumour. Geographical boundaries will not stop us from working. Countries we are exporting health workers to are not doing us a favour. We are helping them when they are in need,” he said.

He added that Kenya will continue to help people get jobs in Europe and the Middle East.
