KAMPALA: The Ministry of Internal Affairs has canceled licenses of eight recruitment agencies for allegedly being involving in human trafficking and violations of the right of their clients.
Agnes Igoye, the Deputy National Coordinator for Prevention of Trafficking in Persons at the Ministry of Internal Affairs says the affected companies have been stopped from operating with immediate effect from today for failure to operate with the stipulated laws of this country.
A total of 216 recruitment agencies were licenses by June 14 this year to operate according to the Internal Affairs Ministry.
Early this month, Ministry of Internal Affairs released a report showing a total of 214 cases of trafficking in persons registered from January to December 2020 compared to the 252 cases in 2019, which indicated a decrease of 15.1 percent.
