Government tightens noose on labour export

The ministry of Gender is to start back ground checks on all Ugandan girls travelling abroad to work as house maids.
This is after the Saudi Arabian authorities warned their citizens against hiring Ugandan house maids, in reaction to a video clip showing a maid mauling a one-and-half-year-old toddler.
