Fake job offers irk Katete DC

PEOPLE of Katete should be security conscious to avoid being exploited by unscrupulous people promising them employment, says district commissioner Joseph Makukula.
Mr Makukula said it was immoral for any would-be employer to charge job applications money as that was tantamount to stealing.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS, Mr Makukula he had received some report over a company he chose not to name demanding money from job seekers for administrative purposes.
“Fraudsters are always there in any community, but the community has to be security conscious even if they know the people they are dealing with,” he said.
Mr Makukula said what had happened in recent past was bad but avoidable if people had the knowledge of fake employers.
He warned one such organisation involved in fake job offers to desist from taking advantage of people’s desperation for employment.
He has since requested the organisation to refund the people that had paid it money in exchange for jobs, failure to which the company risked the wrath of the law.
He said it was also important that people learnt from what had happened and take the initiative of self-employment other than take the risk of being swindled.
