The company allegedly promises its recruited clients, very lucrative commission, under a pyramid arrangement of gaining points through, an expanded recruitment drive.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga identifies the seven coordinators in custody as Enock Lubwama , Michael Buzibu, Domician Manirahari , Collins Ssekigude, Reagan Mulindwa, Aisha Namayanja and Tadeo Kasibante . 

Enanga says a serious manhunt is now taking place for the Director, called Moses Taremwa who is still at large.

He notes that the company had so far recruited a total of 308 youths, including 17 juveniles; who were undergoing training in preparation for their new jobs, at Breton Hotel in Masaka City. 

Each new recruit, Enanga says, was tasked to pay Shs 900,000, which was deposited in one of the accounts at Equity Bank.

Most of the recruits were mobilised from Eastern Region, Central and Northern Regions of Uganda.

“We want to thank the Minister of State for Gender, Peace Mutunzo, who listened to the plight of the victims and further sensitised them on the dangers of such traffickers. She assured them of transport arrangements back to their places of origin.” Says Enanga
