To meet the growing demand for trained workforce in the country, the Eritrean government hired 35 Kenyan University lectureres, Associate Professors and Professors. These expatriates have already arrived in the country and start their duty in the seven institutions of higher education.

Eritrean envoy to Kenya, Ambassador Beyene Russom, said his government picked Kenyans because the country has some of the best-trained manpower in the region.

On behalf of the Government of Eritrea, the National Board for Higher Education (NBHE) hired Magtech Inspiration Centre and Toolkit Institute to implement the recruitment process.
