FRAUDSTER: Here Is Why Police Is Investigating Migrant Workers Voice ED Abdallah Kayonde

While the business of labour externalization has been booming in the country and has helped thousands of Ugandan youths find proper employment abroad, especially in Arab countries, it is being threatened by unscrupulous individuals and companies that engage in unbecoming behavior and deals.

The latest altercation has seen the Ministry of Internal Affairs launch investigation into numerous cases of fraudulent forgeries, extortion and human rights violations by a one Abdallah Kayonde, the executive director (ED) of Migrants Workers Voice Network.

According to documents presented, Kayonde is accused of engaging in different criminal acts including among others fleecing money from unsuspecting domestic workers in countries like Saudi Arabia, Oman and UAE purporting to help desperate Ugandans to get justice.

This followed after the Ministry received several calls from several people whose relatives the Migrants Workers Voice Network Company located in Rubaga road promised National Identity Cards and passports which were allegedly withheld by the recruiting firms.

About 326 Ugandans have complained against Abdallah Kayonde who requested Ugx 200,000 shillings promising to train and also secure them jobs abroad, but they have never got jobs nor the money.

Ugandans seeking to work abroad have been urged to consult the labour ministry for an authentic list of labour export firms. Those abroad have also been advised to seek assistance from the Ugandan Embassies.

From their website, Migrants Workers Voice Network claims that their vision is to empower, sensitize and train migrant working communities in an environment with equal opportunities for growth and development to improve their quality of life and work in the International communities around the world.

While their mission is to have an empowered, experienced and self-reliant migrant workers through legitimate sensitization, rehabilitation and rights advocacy, enhancing their capacities to effectively participate in realizing economic and social development goals and in improving their livelihood standards.

However, going by the latest accusations and the investigations instituted by the ministry of internal affairs, members of the public need to tread carefully when dealing with Migrants Workers Voice Network.
