MWANZA. Ministry of Labour and Employment has vowed to take legal measures against recruitment agencies that have not complied with the ministry’s directive to officially register their companies.

The Labour and Employment minister, Ms Gaudencia Kabaka, said yesterday that all agencies were required to have been registered with the ministry as early as January of this year. However, she said that only 75 agencies had been registered to date while more than 90 agencies existed, noting that some were still operating illegally.

She made the remarks after meeting with management of SBC Company Ltd (Pepsi), Mwanza branch while deliberating on conflicts between casual labourers and Chasama Solutions Ltd, a recruitment agency, after the latter was accused of mistreating workers.
