According to the release, the Ministry of Labor “deems it fit to take concrete steps to ascertain the authenticity and legality of these companies to engage in recruitment for overseas employment.”

The release called on “all the parties to exercise patience until the outcome of the investigation which will be communicated in due course.”

It could be recalled that there have been several cases and leaked videos of ill-treatment meted out to Sierra Leonean domestic staffs working in foreign countries that went through the same recruitment process and when things went wrong, it was the government that carried the blame for not doing much to assess and identify genuine overseas recruitment agencies.

Most people who spoke with this medium agreed that this step taken by the Government is in the right direction as it would ensure that the right process is followed and government will be able to account for its citizens wherever they may be.

However, there is a growing call from the public urging government to expedite the investigation as overseas recruitment has benefited Sierra Leoneans in terms of job opportunities.
