A man identified as Ayub Mulindwa, aged 40 this week created and maintained a scene at one of the companies located in Namanve Industrial park, Kampala where he carried his family and camped there in protest.
Ayub, a resident of Nabuti village in Mukono district pitched camp at KMB Quantum Developers, a transport company, together with his family of eight.
He accuses the company of failure to pay his salary arrears.
The man, who also recently hit headlines of local media outlets when his wife gave birth to triplets, says he was prompted to take the painful action because his bosses terminated him without pay.
According to Ayub, he was working as a laborer in the company’s mechanical workshop before he was sacked by management without notice.
He told ChimpReports that before he was relieved of his duties, he was owed salary arrears of five months by the company.
The pay slips seen by this website indicate that he was earning a monthly payment of Ugx 400,000/= and his arrears had mounted to 2 million shillings.
“When I was terminated, I asked my bosses to pay my money but they declined. I have been tossed several times yet I need that money to meet my family requirements,” Ayub said.
He says he decided to take his family to his work place such that the bosses can realize the responsibilities he has to fulfill since his landlord has also thrown them out of the house in Mukono.
He took his wife identified as Jamila Namisi and their seven children including the four months’ triplets.
Ayub’s family has so far spent five days at the company and they sleep on the floor at the door way of his former boss’s office.
When chimp corps visited the scene, we found the wife had severe fever and the babies were not breast feeding at the moment.
Management declined to speak to the media about the situation.
However, it was established that the company laid off some workers last year under unclear circumstances. Insiders say it is struggling.
Ayub can be reached on his mobile numbers 0755-896442 and 0787899550.
This website also established that many workers in most of the newly established industrial parks face several challenges.
They said that, some investors don’t issue appointment letters, pay little and some are cheated of their benefits such as NSSF.
