Middle East Consultant Managers
Two managers of Middle East Consultants, a Labour exporting company who were arrested and charged of human trafficking have been committed to the High Court.  

The officials Benon Kunywana and Godfrey Kyalimpa first appeared before Entebbe Grade One Magistrate Phiona Birungi, in September and charged with five counts of Human Trafficking, forgery and obtaining money by false pretence.

They allegedly forged documents of the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development.  

Each of them was asked to commit a cash bail of two million Shillings before securing temporal freedom, while their sureties were committed to a non-cash bail of five million Shillings.

The sureties included Gordon Mugyenyi, the Managing Director Middle East Consultants and Richard Ssembuusi, also an employee of the same company.

On Friday, the Entebbe Chief Magistrate Mary Babirye committed the two officials to the High Court for trial.

 The officials were arrested during operations mounted by both the Police and the State House Anti-Corruption Unit headed by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema.

The operation targeted at least 30 companies involved in labour externalization, the majority of which have been accused of mistreating Ugandans.
