Response From Jobline Consultancy Regarding The Alleged Group Of Young People Found In Naalya

Reports earlier today indicated that the Ministry of Internal Affairs rescued a group of about 30 youths from an illegal housing facility in Naalya Estate in Nakawa Division where they were allegedly being kept for jobs abroad by Jobline Consultancy. Of the 33 victims, 25 were men and 8 were females. The deputy Coordinator of prevention of trafficking in Persons, Ignes Igoye in the Internal Affairs Ministry says that she found all these crowded in one room with only four mattresses.

However, NewslexPoint reached out to one of the directors of the company in question for a comment, a one Frank Mubiru. In his defense, he said that on the 20th-November 2021, they had interviews at their office premises in Naalya and that a number of people traveled from different parts of the country to seat for these interviews. Some of them were caught up by curfew and could not travel back to their home districts. He further added that they advised this group of youths to find accommodation at local guest houses in the area. Some of them followed through and checked into local guest houses

“As soon as I left the premises that evening, this group of boys upon learning that the company had recently rented a house and it was empty, decided to occupy it. We had not yet allowed anyone to live in this place. Some of these youths were even drunk and when they asked them to identify themselves, they refused and that is what prompted the area police to swing into action. Sadly, these group upon realizing their mistake quickly left the area.”

This incident comes at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has rendered many Ugandans jobless and the only option they see viable is to exit the country through these labour exporting companies.

Mr. Mubiru also added that indeed the deputy Coordinator of prevention of trafficking in Persons in the Ministry of Internal affairs went to this facility, however, she could not record the statement since this group of youths had already left the place.

Jobline Consultancy director went on to ask their existing candidates to exercise calmness as they resolve the issue.
