East African Community Jobs To Be Re-Advertised

Ugandans who applied for the East African Community jobs and got locked out finally have a reason to smile. They have reviewed the recruitment process and they are repeating it to give chance to applicants who lost out in the process.

Also, those who would like to make fresh applications will be able to do so. The East African Affairs minister, Rebecca Kadaga, made the revelation on Thursday at a conference in Kampala.

‘’I am happy to report that following our deliberations and negotiations, a number of positions where Uganda had been eliminated will now be re-advertised. We will advertise these jobs only to Ugandans, so candidates can have an opportunity to apply for those positions for which they locked them out earlier,’’ she said.

She however did not give specifics or timelines but said they would soon release communication about the development.

She also said negotiations were still ongoing regarding the positions of the clerk and deputy clerk. But she revealed her optimism about reaching a decision on the matter soon.

The development ends months of wrangling over the matter, which has put East African community member countries against each other.

The EAC’s mission is to widen and deepen economic, political, social, and cultural integration to improve the quality of life of people from East Africa.

They will do this through competitiveness, value-added production, trade, and investments.

The EAC Secretariat advertized 60 positions open for the six partner states of the coalition.

According to the EAC website, they received over 15,000 applications from all the six EAC states.

They made arrangements to shortlist candidates to participate in the interviews through video conferencing. However, this did not happen as scheduled due to quorum issues.

This is after some countries including Uganda questioned the fairness of the process and the staffing ratios in the community.

Ugandan legislators led by Dennis Namara said there was no equity in the recruitment of staff. They then protested by walking out of the House.

This made Speaker Martin Ngoga suspend sittings in October for lack of quorum.
