Editor– I wish to extend my sincere thanks to the East African Legislative Assembly that pressed member governments to abolishing work permits.
The issue of permits within the region has and is affecting free movement of labour considering the fact that skilled labour is still a challenge in some of the member states. First, the amount scares away anyone willing to have it and secondly it is a burden as most people in the region move to member states for short term contracts or jobs.
The move to use national identification cards rather than travel documents or passports within the region will help even more.
