Uganda: Job Agencies a Key Driver of Human Trafficking

In Awareness, Forced Labor, Human Trafficking on November 14, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Most labour recruitment agencies that are taking Ugandans to work abroad operate without licenses, which is fueling human trafficking in the country.

Eunice Kisembo, the chairperson of the national task force for the coordination of government initiatives against human trafficking, said: “We have about 46 agencies recruiting people to work abroad, but only 23 of these have renewed their licenses.”

“Because of this, we have some agencies that do not know anything about human trafficking laws. They assume that their duty stops at delivering these people,” he added.
