South sudan's bold step

South Sudan on Tuesday stunned the region by expelling all foreign workers, including thousands of Kenyans.
A government order said all foreign employees of private entities should hand over to Sudanese professionals by October 15. It is reminiscent of a 1972 directive by Ugandan dictator Idi Amin expelling Asians.The South Sudanese order might deal a blow to Kenyan companies which have invested in that country and rely on expatriate labour for specialised skills.
