FULL LIST! 22 Ugandan Youths Trafficked to Myanmar


 The Ugandan Ministry of Internal Affairs has launched an investigation into the mysterious case of 22 Ugandan youths who were allegedly trafficked to war-torn Myanmar, where they have been captured by rebels. The victims, consisting of 17 males and five females, were promised lucrative jobs with a monthly salary of $1,200 (approximately sh4.5 million) each.

Deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Derrick Kigenyi, revealed that the youths' relatives have sought assistance in rescuing their loved ones. According to Kigenyi, the victims were deceived under the pretext of securing attractive employment opportunities.

"Relatives of the victims have reached out to us seeking help to rescue their loved ones, and we want to find out how they left the country so as to bring to book those who trafficked them," Kigenyi stated during the weekly security briefing at Naguru in Kampala.

The preliminary findings indicate that the victims' initial destination was Thailand before they were transported to Myanmar. The Ministry of Internal Affairs is urging members of the public with information about the victims to contact the Uganda Police and assist in the ongoing investigations.
