The minister for internal affairs, Maj Gen (rtd) Kahinda Otafiire, has said he is determined to take drastic measures to ensure that Ugandans going for external labour are protected from illegal extraction of their internal organs.
Otafiire who was responding to press enquiry why of all hospitals in the country he chose Victoria Hospital to conduct comprehensive internal organ testing for all those going for external labour, said he has been getting reports of Ugandans who are taken under the guise of employment but end up being subjected to criminal organ removal and their dead bodies fed to crocodiles.
Nevertheless, Otafiire did not provide numbers of Ugandans believed to have lost their body organs to traffickers or have been killed and fed to crocodiles.Gen Otafiire on labor…..
In addition, Otafiire did not comprehensively name the places where body organ harvesting is taking place so that they can be avoided.
However, Ronnie Mukundane, the spokesperson for Uganda Association for External Recruitment Agencies, said it is not possible to get fake results because the clinics they use to test all people going for external labour were certified by the Gulf Cooperation Council.
