Cameroon raises age limit for recruitment of people with disabilities in public service

According to Joseph Le, minister of the Public Sector and Administrative Reform, the government of Cameroon has formally raised the entry age for hiring people with disabilities in the public service by five years.

The new law permits people with disabilities to access employment possibilities in the public sector at any age up to 35, whereas in Cameroon candidates seeking employment in civil or public service must not be older than 30.

According to the official, people with disabilities who want to work in the public sector must provide documentation of their professional, academic, and university training, be in possession of a national disability card, and only apply for positions that are appropriate for their particular disability.
