 Over 151 Labor Export Licenses Getting  Revoked

Mukono municipality MP Betty Nambooze has asked parliament to suspend licences of all the existing Labor export companies exceeding 151 in number. She made the remarks while appearing before the flow of parliament.

While making her submission before the speaker of parliament the Mukono legislators said that over 53 girls are stranded at Uganda embassy in Abu Dhabi after their bosses harassed them. However, the Ugandan embassy has instructed the girls to pay over 1.5 million shillings to cater for their transport back home.

Nanbooze further told the house that early last week 23 girls were deported at Entebbe airport when they were in very poor health condition, Nambooze demanded the ministry of labour to directly negotiate the travel arrangement instead of companies.                                                          

This has forced the speaker to instruct the ministry of gender to present a report regarding the status of export labour companies, which was to be debated before the final resolution will be made.

The matter has generated debate from MPs who include Kibweri county MPs in Kibuku district Hassan Gonahassa who expressed anger on the way the girls have been treated.

Women legislators who included Ntoroko woman MP Ana Mary Tumwine have also condemned the matter and Kigadi woman MP Jennifer Mbabazi said that this matter requires an immediate address.

She demanded to have the profile of this company plus additional information from these companies.

This is the third time this matter has been presented to the house recently it was introduced by the committee of gender and later the committee of equal opportunity.
