You have all heard that video where our young women cry out for help. They ask to return to Uganda. See the clip on this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SI2f2X2bsLo
We are all parents and we must not take their plight lightly.
Congratulations to the government of Uganda for banning exporting maids to the Middle East. Now let us go one step further.
I challenge president Museveni and the opposition leaders to suspend their campaigns for one week. You will save enough money from this one week suspension and then fly our children home. When bodies washed up on the beaches of Lake Victoria in Entebbe, your silence was defeaning. This time you can act and act before the entire rises up and screams blue murder.
After you bring them home, use the balance of the money to put them in technical schools. OR give each of them sh. 250,000 to start a small business of their own. Poverty solved. Then also remembers that it is an economic stimulus and will lead to job creation. BUY UGANDA is possible. I provide free business consulting in case you want to work with me to help them.
