Kenyan woman arrested in Uganda for human trafficking

25 January 2016, 13:31 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A Kenyan woman is being held by Uganda police for alleged human trafficking.

The woman, whom police have identified as Abdalla Khalima, allegedly sent Ugandan girls to the United Arab Emirates with a promise of jobs but when they reached there, they were made house helps under very severe conditions even at times gang raped.

According to Uganda's deputy spokesperson, Polly Namaye, Khalima was arrested from Makindye, a suburb of Kampala and is being interrogated by by police special investigations division based at Kireka.

"We received complaints from seven girls claiming that she was responsible for their trip to United Arab Emirates. She was doing it with her accomplices who are at the moment on the run,'' said Namaye.

Namaye further noted that investigations so far reveal that she used her company, Turkey Business Solutions, to recruit girls and send them to United Arab Emirates to work as cleaners and housekeepers.

One of the girls mistreated in United Arab emirates, Joan Nakanjako said: ''I was treated like an animal. I was harassed and sexually abused by five men.''

Last week, Uganda banned all agencies that have been sending workers overseas after complaints of harassment and slavery by the workers.
