Ugandans in sex slavery cry out for help

Uganda Police boss Gen. Kale Kayihura. The institution he heads has warned Ugandans on juice job offers abroad

Uganda Police Force continues to receive calls of distressed Ugandans mostly women living in Arab countries who are enduring sex slavery and other forms of exploitation by their bosses, the Commissioner of Police for Human trafficking monitoring told The Sunrise that police receives between 10-15 complaints on a monthly basis from Ugandans who are held in captivity and enduring torture in Arab countries.

Binogo made the revelations while addressing representatives from licensed labour companies at Kati Kati restaurant in Kampala.

“Majority of the victims are female adults and the most common forms of exploitation are labour and sexual exploitation.” Binogo added: “The most common destination countries are Kuwait, where 29 cases have been recorded, United Arab Emirates (six cases).

Almost all the victims of these abuses were recruited by unlicensed companies who attract unsuspecting job seekers by making deceptive promises of well-paying jobs, according to Police.

The Police therefore urged the general public to always go through the 31 labour recruitment companies that were licensed by the Ministry of Labour.
