Uganda police has arrested a Kenyan national over suspected human trafficking.
Khalima Abdallah, the suspect, is the owner of Supreme Security and Turkey Biz Solutions, an agency that claims to get girls jobs abroad.
According to police, Khalima Abdallah was using her Turkey Biz Solutions to recruit cleaners and maids for deployment.
Police spokesman, Fred Enanga, says the girls are later abused in Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
Enanga says Khalima has been coordinating with Mutab Pashar Ral Suaaery based in Saudi Arabia to receive Ugandan workers.
He said they have already contacted International Police [Interpol] to arrest Mutab for interrogation.
Over the weekend, Uganda’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Dr. Rashid Ssemuddu, rescued some of the Ugandan girls detained at Riyadh Detention Centre.
On Friday, the minister of Gender, Muruli Mukasa, issued a statement banning the exportation of girls to Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
Ugandan ambassador Dr. Ssemuddu on Saturday visited Riyadh detention centre where girls were being detained.
The Ambassador later spoke out on harassment of Ugandan domestic workers in Saudi after visit to Riyadh Detention Centre where 24 girls are detained.
The ambassador says they have contacted the companies sending girls abroad to send them return tickets.
The ambassador denied that the embassy was involved in the trafficking of girls to Saudi Arabia.
He asked girls to reveal if there are government officials involved in their trafficking.
The company is said to have so far trafficked over 40 Ugandan girls to Saudi Arabia.
About 40 passports were found at their offices.
According to Enanga, preliminary investigations show that some recruitment agencies connive with some people in South Arabia in search of female immigrants for sexual abuse.
The girls forced into marriages in different homes where they are raped and later sold off as prostitutes.
