|LUSAKA， Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Zambian government on Thursday announced the suspension of conditional work permits for expatriate workers in order to reorganize the system and empower the country's own skilled workers.
Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo was speaking at the country's embassy in South Africa when he addressed workers， according to a statement released by the embassy.
The statement added that the system had been abused as some unscrupulous Zambians were conniving with some investors beyond the stipulated period of the permits.
According to him， the work permits were given to expatriate workers by investors in order to train local people.
A committee has since been put in place to reorganize the system to ensure that the abuse of the work permits was eradicated， he added.
The measure was also meant to increase the availability of job opportunities and empower Zambians who were able to take up such positions given to expatriate workers.
"The renewal of work permits for expatriates would remain suspended while a framework that would benefit Zambians was being devised，" he said.
"We have talked about empowering Zambians for a long time and it's now time we were practical. We must walk the talk. It is so unfortunate that we have had some Zambians colluding with investors and in the process disadvantaging skilled Zambians，" he added.
The government， he pointed out， consulted with all stakeholders before making the decision.
JERUSALEM Cheap Adidas Originals Men's Superstar Skate Bold Gold , Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- An Israeli court on Thursday sentenced to jail five Israeli Arabs for their role in the killing of a Jewish soldier that went on a shooting spree against Arabs eight years ago, in a decision that ignited rage among the Arab community.
In 2005 Cheap Women's Adidas Originals Superstar 2 Red Grey , Israeli soldier Eden Natan-Zada opened fire with an army-issued rifle in a bus that was heading to the northern Arab town of Shefaram.

Natan-Zada, who was a supporter of the far-right extremist Kahanist movement and a resident of settlement Tapuah in the occupied West Bank Cheap Adidas Originals Superstar Adicolor Black White , allegedly acted in opposition to the Israeli government's disengagement plan from Gaza that took place two weeks later.

""Jewish terrorists who kill Arabs get light penalties Cheap Adidas Originals Superstar 2 Brown , sometimes even only probations,"" he said. ""Instead of prosecuting us Cheap Adidas Superstar Animal Patterns Black White , the police should have defended the people of Shefaram from cases like this,"" Safuri added.

JUBA， Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- South Sudan's only tarmacked major highway， the 123-mile Juba-Nimule road， remains a death trap in the eyes of many who endure hours of travel along the potholed road linking the war-torn country to the Ugandan border.
According to Isaac Mashete， a driver for Eco-Bus one of the few bus companies plying along the Juba-Kampala highway， he is always wary of a bullet striking him at his seat along with others on board by armed groups operating in the shadow on the road.
""The first thing you fear is a bullet， other accidents are common and whenever they occur the wreckage on the scene is not carted away and so further accidents reoccur，"" Mashete told Xinhua on Sunday after he negotiated the tortuous journey to arrive in Juba.
Since the renewed July clash in Juba last year the highway has claimed more than 100 lives， including shooting at the Ugandan army convoy evacuating people fleeing fighting and the February shooting to death of a top ranking South Sudan army (SPLA) Brigadier has reinforced public fear and anxiety.
Those who always risk the journey have told Xinhua that the persistent robberies， killings along the key transport corridor of South Sudan is driven by the fact thousands of illegal weapons being in hands of civilians who impersonate security agencies.
Mashete， added that on several occasions some ill disciplined security people and criminals not particularly rebel outfit have resorted to carrying out robberies， which he attributes to the prevailing economic hardship in the country that has led to delayed salaries for the SPLA and police officers.
""Another thing there are several people with guns and uniforms. And it is difficult to distinguish who is a government soldier or impersonator. So the government should disarm the population，"" he revealed.
He also disclosed that ever since last year， when of one of their Eco-bus was attacked by gunmen who later set the ill-fated bus ablaze; he is relieved this year they haven't yet been attacked.
But， adds that with the coming of the rainy season starting February， the tall grass and trees along the road will grow and will affect visibility which gun men will take advantage of to stage deadly attacks on travelers.
Mashete urged the authorities to help cut down the tall trees and grass along the road to give visibility to drivers， thus avoiding road ambushes that have been a permanent occurrence before subsiding in January， this year.
SPLA spokesman Brigadier Lul Ruai Koang revealed to Xinhua that the gun men behind attacks of vehicles use hit-and-run tactics where they exploit the distance between the over stretched soldiers deployed to patrol the road.
