Human rights activist Mwiza Miriam has pinned the RDC Namisimbwa district for aiding a human trafficking case of the late Christine Nambereke.
Christine Nambereke (RIP) like many other several women that are trafficked out of Uganda to Nairobi through Lwakhakha border point was trafficked on 18th September 2018.
According to family sources, she was trafficked by a one Kuremu Stephane, a former chairman LC3 of Bukabi Sub County, Bumbo Namisindwa District.
According to the late Christine’s husband, her wife told her that she had got someone who was going to take her to Oman to work.
The husband told the Nile Post that he agreed with his wife (Christine) to go and work in Oman since their situation was not good.
According to the husband, the late Christine reached Oman and like they had agreed, she sent in money for the first three months which changed the fortunes of their young family.
The change was however short lived. In March this year, Christine told her husband that all had changed and she was being overworked with little time to rest.
“She sent videos that she was being overworked. She told us that she was working in two homes which wasn’t part of the contract,” – A family source said in part.
The family adds that, Christine sent videos on social media saying that she was being made to eat poison by her bosses. She was announced dead on 18th March.
Three months later, the suspect in this case, Kuremu Stephane was however not arrested or questioned by Police like it ought to be.
Now activist Mwiza Mariam, the director of Overseas Workers Voice Uganda who has followed up this case since March says that the RDC of Namisidwa, Kigai Moses has shielded the suspect from arrest.
Mwiza told the Nile Post that she reached out to the CID at Kibuli headquarters where she talked to Mutibwa who confessed to her that they were willing to get the suspect arrested but their efforts are hindered by the orders of the RDC Namisindwa, Kigai Moses.
“I am accusing the office of the RDC Namisindwa and the professional standard unit boss Nambafu because his name also appears in the saga. How can a professional standard unit officer be involved a in human trafficking case?” Mwiza seemed to pose.
She added: “I am appealing to the CID Kibuli police to be honest and follow the matter. I request the RDC Namisindwa Kigai Moses to step out of this case and let him leave the law to take its course as we fight human trafficking. I demand justice. Kuremu Stephane should be arrested and persecuted in courts of law.”
The Nile Post reached out to the office of the RDC Namisindwa for a comment on the matter but our efforts yielded no results as he wasn’t willing to comment on the matter.
The message of this reporter was also not replied to despite being seen by the time of compiling this report.
The late Christine left behind a young family of seven children and the husband. They are currently suffering with debts having borrowed money to send off Christine to Oman hoping that she will be able to work and pay them off.
