A Ugandan lady, Angellah Nassali, is in danger after she suffered kidney damage in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) under circumstances unknown, according to her friends and relatives who she likely to die there even not brought back home as soon as possible.
We need help on retrieving our girl (Nassali Angellah) who is fighting for her life (Kidney damage) from Ajman, UAE,” says Denis Wantente, a relative.
Ms Nassali is said to have been trafficked by a one Derrick Yowabu here in Uganda who claimed to have a company which recruits maids to Dubai which Wantete says was false/fraud and deception. He says Yowabu ‘was just a middle man (Agent) who recruits girls in a deceptive way that he knows where they are going but only to reach there, they are taken to an office for sale.’
Wantante says Yowabu trafficks Ugandan girls to a certain lady in Ajman called Shamse (Real names: Tsehay Baycheken Walelign an Ethiopian national) located at SBK Apartments, 2nd Floor – Room 209, opposite central post office – car parking, P. O. Box 2993. “
This lady (Shamsa, Tel: +9705524865862 / +970552023778, their offices called Al Waseet Labours recruitment located near a supermarket opposite Al Madina Police Station) together with her husband completely refused to let Angellah go plus many other girls. For over four months now, Angellah has been abducted and locked since 14th of July 2019 by this lady Shamsa and her visit visa expired, they eat one meal a day (water and bread) up to now the girl plus others are still locked up,” he says.
This woman Shamsa has always asked for money and the police nearby or opposite is corrupt… because many girls have been rushing for help but they end up not being helped, Wantante says.
This report comes at the time when men Ugandan girls continue to suffer and die in the Middle East as where they were taken as domestic workers.
Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze recently said she has evidence showing some Ugandan girls and boys in the Middle East have had some of their body organs like kidneys removed without their consent, with some dying in the process.
