Uganda’s ministry of Gender, labour and social development has terminated licences of 3 different international recruitment agencies and suspended 7 others for allegedly failing to obey the rules and regulations.
On Monday this week, ministry of labour issued out a statement advising Ugandans to avoid dealing with victimized companies.
The commissioner of employment services, Mr Egulu Lawrence told media that recruitment agencies whose licenses were cancelled were taking people’s money and later fail to take them abroad for work as promised.
The 1st three recruitment agencies on our press statement involved themselves in cheating desperate Ugandans promising to take them abroad for work, we therefore couldn’t bare with this, we were forced to terminate their licences immediately,’’said Mr Lawrence.
According to Mr Lawrence, for all those whose licenses were suspended had fake bank guarantee certificates, which aggregates to total fraud. Each labour export company with a license from the ministry is authorized to present to the ministry with Shs50 million bank guarantee, which can be utilized to solve any financial related issues with their clients,’’he said.
They handed in their bank guarantees showing the Shs50 million already secured, but later we realized that they were just forged, this was after trying to withdraw some money and there was nothing, surprisingly, the banks also denied those alleged documents.
Affected recruitment agencies
Those suspended include: Elite Placements Consulting Ltd, Karibuni International Ltd, Labour Frontiers International Ltd, Professional Recruitment services, Rokas Recruitment services, Swift International Recruiters Ltd and Fresh Mind International Ltd.
Those terminated include: Abroad placement Ltd, Ssuman services Ltd and Fountain Security Services.
The CEO of Rokas Recruitment services, Mr Orone Derrick said his company license has been suspended in vain because he’s sure the bank guarantee he submitted to the ministry is clean and genuine.
