A group of Ugandan girls who were reportedly taken out of Uganda by Col. Chris Mudoola’s Uganda Veterans Development Ltd (UVDL) claim that their internal body organs were removed and sold off by their employers.
This was revealed at the parliamentary committee of Gender, Labor and Social Development by three of the victims .
The girls who raised their complaint to parliament last year ,in their recent submission say their employers subjected them to surgeries without their consent and they believe they lost their internal organs in the process or had them replaced.
The women were lured to Iraq with promises of good by UVDL. However , the license of UVDL was revoked in 2009 by ministry of gender after many complaints arose that the Ugandan workers it was taking were being mistreated in Iraq.
The ordeal of these girls in question first came to the limelight in 2011 when an American marine in Iraq, Lt Col. Theodore Lockwood, rescued 14 women from alleged indecent slavery.
In his defence ,Col .Mudoola stated that told the committee to examine the girls and establish the truth.
“If body parts are removed, do they grow? Let these girls be subjected to a second medical examination,” He said
Consequently the committee plans to send a delegation to Iraq in the first week of March to verify their allegations.
