Breaking News: Dinka’s JCE demanded the Gov’t of South Sudan to hired 20, 000 Zimbabwean

JiengJCE once again urgently asked the  government of South Sudan to requested for 20.000 graduate from Zimbabwe.

Thursday 4th February 2016, It is reportedly that there is a ray of hope for unemployed graduates in Zimbabwe as South Sudan wants 20,000 Zimbabweans to work in different fields in the North African country.
The graduates will be paid United Nations international rates for expatriates which are far more than salaries most Zimbabweans are paid in foreign countries.
In June last year, the government invited those who graduated from the country’s tertiary institutions since 1980 to forward their names for possible employment outside the country while it works on various ways of creating employment as espoused in its economic blueprint, Zim-Asset.
Next week, the government will sign a memorandum with South Sudan to pave way for 20,000 Zimbabweans to work in that country.
Addressing academics, business leaders and government officials at the first annual Midlands State University (MSU) interface meeting in Gweru on Tuesday, the deputy director of higher education programmes in the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Caleb Mharapira, said South Sudan wanted 20,000 professionals in different fields.
He said those who will be employed will leave for South Sudan “shortly”.
Mharapira said the government was still debating on which proposal to adopt between making the expatriates remit 25 percent of their salary back to their families or depositing it into a pool monitored by the government.
“There should be at least a percentage that will be remitted back to the country or directly into a government pool and we’re still looking at the proposals. So what it means is that their families, our banks and the government will benefit from their salaries,” said Mharapira.
He said those to be employed in South Sudan will be paid UN rates for expatriates.
Mharapira however said if people listen to the BBC and CNN, they would refuse to go and work in South Sudan because the media houses paint a gloomy picture of that country just as they do on Zimbabwe.
He said the government had also finished laying the ground work for graduates to go and work in Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.
Mharapira said they were still negotiating with South Africa and Malawi for possible MoUs.
Mharapira said the graduates will be taken from the database of unemployed graduates which the government created. Last year, he said, the government called on unemployed graduates to register for possible job placements both abroad and locally. herald

  1. WELL AND FINE, CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR ZIMBABWEAN SISTERS AND BROTHERS WHO LUCKILY GOT JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN THEIR ORPHANED SISTER COUNTRY SOUTH SUDAN.
    I hear that (THEY) “”the Zimbabwean graduates” will be paid United Nations international rates for expatriates which are far more than salaries most Zimbabweans are paid in foreign countries”. well to me as a compassionate and a nationalistic South Sudanese hiring 20,000 graduates from a foreign country sounds good but also pretty amazing and so annoying more specially the way they are intended to be paid.
    FIRST OF ALL;
    I wish all Zimbabweans and South Sudanese could read this; look, quite number of our (South Sudanese) graduate teachers have left and others are still quitting their jobs more especially the education sector because of poor salaries and even of lack of payment and if am not mistaken there are hundreds of South Sudanese graduates in and outside South Sudan who are searching for jobs but are not employed and the government is here planning to employ 20,000 foreign graduates and that “The graduates will be paid United Nations international rates for expatriates which are far more than salaries most Zimbabweans are paid in foreign countries” as if South Sudan is the best economically in comparison to the other countries that have hired Zimbabwe’s graduates! HMMMM…..
    >>>>>My suggestion is why don’t the government of South Sudan first employ its own graduates and pay them fairly leave away the so-called UNITED NATIONS’s INTERNATIONAL RATES, then after that let them then hire our brothers and sisters from Zimbabwe and other nationalities<<<<<
    SECONDLY;
    To the deputy director of higher education programmes in the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Zimbabwe, Caleb Mharapira, sir as a compassionate and nationalistic South Sudanese who lives in South Sudan and who knows if not all at least most of the inhuman activities happening in South Sudan especially in Juba in which at-least every night in each and every neighborhood maybe in exception of the president's neighborhood you must hear of gun shoots and of course in the morning you hear that this and that number have been murdered and injured by (UNKNOWN GUNMEN) sometimes by security personnel or the police which of course in most cases will be released officially as (UNKNOWN GUNMEN) it really hurts and kills me to hear a high profile person like you terming this situation shadily as a (GLOOMY PAINTED PICTURE) as stated in the above statement that: Mharapira however said if people listen to the BBC and CNN, they would refuse to go and work in South Sudan because the media houses paint a gloomy picture of that country just as they do on Zimbabwe. serious with all the mourning everyday and night you boldly simplify it as a (GLOOMY PAINTED PICTURE)? hmmm i wonder where humanity is in the world. Well i know its already a business just as it happened with Uganda also but what about the blood of the people who are dying here in South Sudan daily cant you just simply sympathise with?????????? may God have mercy upon us humans!!!!!!!!!!
    THIRDLY;
    I wonder of what this country is sinking into? from fighting and praying since 1950's for freedom from slavery God granted us CPA in 2005, struggling for referendum since 2005 God granted us referendum and we voted for independence in 2011, from not so far from 2011 cases of rampant corruption, tribalism, rebels, among others now its The Jieng Council of Elders commanding a national government to do things, cant remember what it started with but i can still remember about the 28 states,,,,,,, now something new 20,000 graduates to be hired from Zimbabwe i dont know what is up for tomorrow,,,,,,,,,,,, Are we now becoming the second Libya with two Assemblies, the JCE and the SSLA?
