The long-awaited bill passed by the country’s lawmakers also gives guidelines pertaining the employment of foreigners in South Sudan.

The undersecretary for labour and industrial relations in the ministry of labour, Mary Hilary Wani was quoted saying government had, in the past, faced numerous difficulties in enforcing labour regulations,

The new law will be crucial in regulating the labour market, he said.

Wani further said the labour law would help the government crackdown on foreigners working without permits and international organizations that failed to comply with a policy that demands them to have at least 80% of the workforce from South Sudan.

The constitution of South Sudan demands that bills passed by the parliament be assented by the president by before becoming laws.

South Sudan has since been operating without a labour legislation and mainly relied on laws from Sudan, a country it broke away from in July 2011.

    We, the South Sudan citizens should have 90% of the job and 10% for the foreigners. This is how you create the jobs. However, something is better than nothing.
