Police Raid Unregistered Home, Rescue 131 Trafficking Victims Bound for Middle East Jobs

KAMPALA – The Territorial Police in Kampala Metropolitan North and Nansana Division on Monday conducted a successful raid on an unregistered home that was harboring 131 people, falsely claiming to train them for jobs in the Middle East.

 

During the operation, two suspects were arrested, including Namubiru Rashida, a trainer, and Ramathan Hakim, for alleged trafficking in persons.

 

SCP Fred Enanga, the Uganda Police spokesperson, stated that Musa Suna operated the unregistered WORLD GATE training centre, where he trained and gathered these individuals under the pretext of catering and house cleaning jobs in the Middle East.

 

The victims were kept isolated without access to phones for months, leading to their rescue from a home in Nansana.

 

Eight companies involved in recruiting these victims were identified and handed over to the authorities. Enanga emphasized that the Joint Security Agencies are fully committed to combating the heinous crime of Human Trafficking, ensuring that all perpetrators are brought to justice.
