The legislator representing Mukono Municipality Betty Nambooze Bakireke has written to the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga informing her that she is in fear for her her life from both known and unknown people.
Nambooze says that after exposing the loopholes in the exportation of labour, she has been overwhelmed by the increasing of threats on her life over her involvement in the fight against the exportation of Ugandan workers in the middle East countries.
Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze made the disclosure of the threat to her life when she was meeting over 50 victims of exportation of labour in the Middle East countries at Parliament.
Nambooze told the media at parliament that the increasing threats to her life from both known and unknown people stem from her involvement in the fight against illegal export of labour and this has forced her to write to the speaker to seek for protection.
MP Nambooze alleged that several people who hold important positions in government as ministers and members of parliament own companies involved in the exportation of domestic workers in foreign countries.
Nambooze is now asking the Speaker to urgently institute a select committee to investigate the claims in the exportation of domestic workers in outside countries.
Some of the victims have also pinned Middle East Consultants for duping them of over 50 million shillings in return for exporting them for labour which never happened. Instead they hired security people to harass them when they tried to demand for return of their money.
Earlier on the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga had a closed door meeting with the Ministry of gender officials still over the increased harassment of Ugandan domestic workers abroad.
