Dr Alfred Mutua, the cabinet secretary for foreign affairs, has amended his prior statement on the employment chances accessible to Kenyans in Canada.


In a statement on May 16, Mutua said that he was in discussions with Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Sean Fraser about allowing Kenyans to immigrate to Canada and work there.


Mutua's statement added, "I find it pleasing to discover that there are possibilities for employment within different sectors of the economy across Canada, and Kenyans can travel to Canada as students, tourists, and workers," with a warning encouraging Kenyans to be wary of fraudulent job prospects.


Many Kenyans believed that the communication from the Canadian Immigration Department, which warned them of fraudulent jobs that were exploiting them, was directed at Mutua.


The current Foreign Affairs CS has cited the Kenyan media as the source of the issue's disinformation.


"This is journalistic hyperbole. I went to Canada and spoke with many ministries. We discussed business-related topics, such as the export of our goods like avocados and macadamia nuts to Canada. We also spoke about the process for bringing in investors," Mutua remarked on Sema Na Citizen.


He continued by saying that the Canadian government shared his dissatisfaction with the Kenyan media.


"Agencies were promising Kenyans they could provide them work in Canada when I was in Canada. The minister there informed me that they had observed the Kenyan agency's advertising opportunities there.


"We both concurred that if I alerted people about fraudulent employment in Canada, the Canadian government would follow suit. Along with the Canadians, I sent a warning. "In addition, we issued concurrent statements," the CS noted.


The availability of short-term employment for Kenyans in Canada is being discussed, according to Mutua.


"Education is not always required to obtain employment; in Canada, there is an intermittent change module that allows a farmer to temporarily obtain employment during one season and obtain employment during the following season as well."


He emphasised to Kenyans the need to properly complete applications to get hired in Canada. " You must apply for a job in Kenya, " he replied, "not in Canada."
