Government Hits Back At Critics Over Labour Export

Government has condemned critics who accuse it of abandoning Ugandans to suffer at the hands of oppressors in the United Arab Emirates.

Several Ugandans especially young women have often been victims of enslavement and sexual exploitation, leaving critics and government in an endless blame game.

Uganda’s Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates Irene Florence Wekiya tells KFM that those who attack government officials, lack information regarding government position on labour exportation.

Government early this year banned the exportation of labour to the United Arab Emirates, citing abuse and torture of Ugandans by their employers.
