She however says that the mass unemployment cases have made it hard to crack a whip on externalisation f labour
Meanwhile, the Congress Chairperson Mayambala W’Afrika says that there is need to maintain the ban on exportation of labor and also to compel governments to establish a National Diaspora emergency fund to help in rescuing Ugandans from mistreatment and torture while doing domestic work.
