Labour recruiting agency, Middle East Consultants Limited (MEC) has revealed that it has never recruited a one Albert Mwesigye, a Ugandan who is reported to have died in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago contrary to circulating reports on social media and some sites.
Reports on social media allege that the deceased traveled under Middle East Consultants Limited and that the company is asking for Shs15m from the deceased’s wife to transport the body back to
However, in a statement dated April11, 2018, the company says the circulating information is false because it (Middle East Consultants) has never secured employment for the stated deceased person “Albert Mwesigye”.
“We have no record of the deceased in our system records nor a contract with the deceased. We have no communication with anyone claiming to know the deceased nor have we had any discussions with the wife to the deceased as reported in the publication. The statement within
the publication that 15million was asked for is false,” the company says, adding: “As a policy, we always work hand in hand with families of any deceased person throughout the burial arrangements not limited to returning the body to Uganda.”
The company says they have established that the deceased traveled to Abu Dhabi in the company of a one “Peter” under a visitor visa with help from Peter’s brother a one Kalisa Augustine who is based in Abu Dhabi.
“The deceased before the time and date of death has been staying at BedSpace, Al WAHDA Area, Airport Road, ABU DHABI,” the company says, adding: “Our legal team is working with relevant authorities to establish the source of the publication.”
