Abdul Nadduli the National Resistance Party chairperson for Luweero district has quit the race ahead of party primaries in September, 2015 citing poor facilitation.
Nadduli who has served in the seat since 2004 says that he won’t seek re-election for district NRM chairperson and has not picked nomination forms ahead of party primaries in September, this year.
Nadduli aged 72 years says that he is frustrated over lack of funds to run party activities and mobilization campaigns in the district.
Meanwhile, Nadduli is accused together with the Peasant African Promoters Association for defrauding more than 100 youths seeking employment abroad.
In 2013, Nadduli mobilized over 100 youths from Luweero district and recruited them under the Peasant African Promoters Association for job placement in Kuwait and Qatar.
Nadduli is the patron of the association, Yusuf Kikomeko chairperson, his son Umar Nadduli is the project manager, Musa Nadduli general secretary and Public Relation Jakana Nadduli.
Masudi Ssentongo, the Wobulenzi Town Council Youth Publicity secretary told URN the LC V chair mobilised them through Mosques and Church functions to join the association with promises of getting them high paying casual jobs abroad.
He says on recruitment, each of the job seekers was asked to pay up to 2,500,000 Million Shillings to process their travel documents, certificate of good conduct from Interpol, medical fees, membership fees, insurance and transport for job interviews in Kampala.
Ssentongo says he sold his retail shop to raise the money in hope of getting a paying job in vain.
He says their efforts to pressurise Nadduli and other association officials to refund their money have yielded nothing.
Hanifah Zalwango, a resident of Kigulu LC 1 in Wobulenzi explains on learning of the opportunity to go abroad, her elder sister obtained several loans to facilitate her travel.
Muhamadi Turyamwesimira, a resident of Muyenga LC 1 in Wobulenzi town suspects that Nadduli connived with his sons to form an association just to defraud them well knowing they didn’t have capacity to take them abroad.
The affected youths led by Jamiru Lutankome and Nsobya Sunday are threatening to stage protests and drag Nadduli and all the association members to court for fraud.
They want the Nadduli and his team to refund the money they paid to the association and also compensate them for the lost time.
Nadduli confirmed that he was aware of the grievances of the youths and explains that they had partnered with ALSACO International (U) Limited to get jobs abroad but it was not trustworthy and it is responsible for the fraud.
In 2014, the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development forced the agency to return all the girls they had taken to Kuwait to work as domestic servants following reports of harassment.
Managers of ALSACO International (U) Limited were also arrested for human trafficking.
