On Wednesday, the Kenyan government revealed its decision to send casual laborers to engage in agricultural work in Israel.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection made this announcement during a bilateral meeting with Israeli delegates held in Nairobi.

Rami Cohen, the Managing Director of Guri Avocados, headed the Israeli team.

“These opportunities number about 1,500 with a guaranteed net income of  Ksh228,000 (USD 1500) per month, on 3 years renewable contracts,” the Kenyan government stated.

The program will involve the recruitment of Kenyans through diverse agencies, as stated by the Ministry of Labour.

However, only labor recruiting agencies authorized by the National Employment Authority will have permission to hire workers.

The job negotiations saw the attendance of Eric Rutto, who serves as the President of the Kenya Chamber of Commerce.

In a preceding interview, Roseline Njogu, the Principal Secretary of Diaspora Affairs, disclosed that more than 510 Kenyans were currently employed in Israel. She clarified that a significant portion of them were engaged in the Agriculture sector.

The agreement with Israel was established just one month after President William Ruto pledged to send 3,000 Kenyans overseas for employment every week.
