The two include Peter Kayiguwa, 50 the manager of a house help recruiting company and Sandra Mukibi, a resident of Kireka and master of the victim.
It is alleged that Kayiduwa through his company known as Master Maids Uganda Limited advertised “juicy jobs’ that attracted the victim and many other unemployed young girls to apply.

“She was battered with electric wires, pieces of wood, forcefully confined indoors, burnt hands, private parts, beaten with a ladle, detained in a storeroom and later Mukibi failed to pay her wages,” the statement continues.
