Middle East Consultant bosses denied bail

Entebbe Court Chief Magistrate Mary Babirye has further remanded two Middle East Consultants who were last friday charged with four counts of human trafficking and forgery.Godfrey Kyalimpa and Benon Kunywana  had applied for bail through their lawyer  Ivan Wanume but Prosecution’s Jean Nareeba objected to their release saying neither the sureties presented nor the accused persons are  residents within Entebbe and therefore are a flight risk.
Its against this background that Magistrate Babirye sent them back on remand at Kigo prison until 16th/September/2019 to rule on their bail application.

Last week the accused persons appeared before Grade one Magistrate Phiona Birungi and denied the allegation.

Its alleged that Kanywana a general manager and Kyalimpa a recruiting and vetting officer for Middle East Consultants Labour Export Company,  printed, issued and distributed a clearance list for migrant workers from the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development, intending to illegally export workers out of Uganda.

They allegedly committed the offence on 12th/February/this year between Kampala and Entebbe airport in Wakiso.
