Employers in the private sector have been urged to employ workers with different forms of disability just like the way the public sector has been doing.

The call was made here today by Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa when responding to a supplementary question from Special Seat MP Amina Mollel (CCM) who asked a direct question to the PM, wanting to know what measures had been taken by the government to assist persons with disabilities in enjoying their statutory rights at work places.

In her supplementary question, Ms Mollel said most of persons with disabilities were facing numerous challenges at their work places and were seriously deprived of their basic rights by their employers.

“Honorable Prime Minister I would first like to appreciate the way the government has been giving deep consideration towards the welfare of the people with different forms of disability in the country. But, there are still numerous challenges facing them, especially at work places, most employers are not treating them in reflection to the government’s policies and directives. What do you have to say on this? She asked the PM.

Responding, Mr Majaliwa said the fifth phase government was committed to ensuring that people with disability in the country were not depressed at any level.
