Express Players Demand For Shs36m Wage Arrears

The Speaker of Parliament, story http://courtneybarnett.com.au/wp-content/themes/twentythirteen/inc/back-compat.php Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, http://chatterblast.com/wp-includes/class-walker-nav-menu.php has asked government to explain and cancel an agreement it signed for the export of domestic workers to Saudi Arabia.

Speaker Kadaga said government was not capable of supervising or monitoring of domestic workers employed in a foreign country to ensure the respect of their human rights.

The Speaker who made the remarks during a sitting of Parliament on Tuesday, said that countries like the Philippines and Ethiopia had banned the exportation of their people to work in the Middle East, but that government had ignored a Parliament resolution to stop the practice in Uganda.

Following the Speaker’s communication, legislators told harrowing tales of girls working in the Middle East, from where they cannot leave having deposited their travel documents with the employers or employment agencies.

Hon. Elijah Okupa (FDC, Kasilo) said his delegation had found sex workers, who had escaped from their employers’ in Dubai, but could not return home because their employers had confiscated their passports.

According to Hon. Beatrice Anywar (FDC, Kitgum), government must be restrained from exporting domestic workers, who end up as sex slaves.

“Women deserve to do decent jobs. We need dignity for women, but not to work as sex slaves,” said Hon. Anywar.

Members said government was being insensitive in signing MoUs with countries with a poor record on human rights issues.

The Minister of State for Finance, Hon. David Bahati, said government would look at loopholes in any MoU signed such that they can be put right. He promised that a Statement would be presented to Parliament during its next sitting.

Express FC’s next Uganda Premier League match on Good Friday against Bright Stars is unlikey to take place after he players, recipe http://chistes-cortos.info/wp-includes/formatting.php led by captain Willy Kavuma, buy http://comeandcheck.it/wp-includes/template.php gave the club an ultimatum of paying them outstanding wages for over six months by Friday this week.

Club chairman Francis Ntalazi confirmed that the poignant players are demanding wages amounting to over Shs 36 million before they call off their week-long strike. Ntalazi insists the arrears are to be paid on 5th of April, 2015.

“We have families to look after and rent to pay. But the club just keeps making promises. How do we survive? Unless they pay us, we are not going to honour any more games,” vowed Kavuma moments after the strike began last week.

Well, the first Ugandan club to use football boots in 1957, doesn’t compare favourably in terms of payment. The highest paid player at the former league champions gets sh300,000 while the lowest gets sh200,000. But until recently, former club chairman Kavuma Kagenge paid them appearance fees which depended of win or loss without salaries. They were also provided with a transport allowance of sh5,000; sh20,000 for a match win, sh10,000 for a draw and nothing for a loss. All these are no more because they have no known source of income or financier.
