Govt suspends export of workers to Oman
Written by Lindah Nduwumwami on October 18, 2018
The government has frozen the export of Ugandans to work in Oman, in the Middle East, pending a planned investigation by an ad hoc committee into a litany of alleged grotesque rights violations.
Gender Minister Janat Mukwaya announced the suspension yesterday, but gave no timeline of when the probe committee will start work.
The suspension is based on victims’ testimonies, has over the months reported about alleged borderless ill-treatment of Ugandan women hired as domestic workers and turned in the country into sex slaves.
