People in the labour export bussiness have lashed out to some members of Parliament who are seeking for total ban of labour externalisation saying that many Ugandans have continued to suffer in the middle East countries with some facing modern day slavery .
Addressing the media earlier today at the offices of the middle East Consultants in Muyenga ,the spokes person of Uganda External Recruitment Agency Gordon Mugyenyi has advised members of Parliament to think of tabling measures on how to control un registered companies from taking Ugandans abroad rather than banning the entire bussiness.
“Some legislators are playing their political games ,this bussiness has helped and employed a number of Ugandans and the Uganda Revenue Authority collects some good amount of money. Banning this bussiness can’t be the way to go. Let members of Parliament plan other measures but this bussiness should continue. If it is to ban the bussiness,why don’t they start with closing the Kampala masaka road because it has killed anumber of people .”Gordon said
He added that more than fifty thousand people are employed in the middle East countries and now they have embarked on taking professional workers.
This comes at a time when the deputy speaker of parliament Jacob Oulanya directed the minister of gender labour and social development hajjati Jannant Mukwaaya to come up with a full report about the labour export bussiness after the Mukono Municipality member of parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke raised concern about the mistreatment of Ugandans in the Arab world .
