Two staff identified as Benon Kunywana, the General Manager and Ayamba Owen a field agent have been arrested by Anti Corruption Unit following the allegations that Middle East Consultants Limited, a labor exporting company has been involved in fraud and extortion.
It is alleged that Kunywana, the field agent obtained money from over twenty people which totaled up to fifty million promising them jobs abroad in Arab countries but these promises were never fulfilled. “These gentlemen have been identified to be key in making Ugandans suffer so much,” said Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema.
She said that several men and women have made complaints that Middle East Consultants has been extorting money from them and has not taken them anywhere. She added that Kunywana was arrested in January at the airport trafficking about twenty-seven girls to Arab countries using fake government documents.
“You have a case and you have not been accessible, today we are happy that we got you and you are definitely going to be in police custody,” said Nakalema.
