This is in follow up to a piece I wrote earlier this month warning #Ugandan youth of their willingness to jump at any offer which promises them money or a chance to go abroad. All my information was stolen from my Face Book profile and used to create fake accounts to lure people into my life. You make a very big mistake when you do not use your brain and you let yourselves be decieved just because of the desperate poverty we face in Uganda. There are other ways to earn a living. For example for 15 months, my team spent a lot of time calling out to Ugandans to work with us to start small projects. Our team was giving the start up capital for free and we were providing the business advice too. The youth mocked us and made a habit of abusing my husband and I all over Face Book for giving too little an amount, it was sh. 50,000 sent mobile money, then we went to sh. 100,000 but people said it was not enough for anything. Well, you can now go and ask the ones who took it seriously. Non, we are no longer giving away money. We are however providing Business Consulting (free) as long as you have your own money. Any amount is fine but you should try to have sh. 200,000. Now, here are some of the reasons why you must avoid internet scams. How can you even think that a person you do not know will take you to Canada. We could fly to Canada via Beijing or Hong Kong with me claiming that I have some business there.
1) You can get murdered. Your internal organs are worth a lot of money. Kidneys, lungs, liver and heart are worth a lot of money. Even the eyes are worth money for transplant for people who have need vision.
2) You can end up being a domestic servant with no pay or very little pay, being beaten up, raped and treated as horribly as some stories you read about and I have even posted some of those stories.
3) You could end up in the porn industry and this even was in your own media, the university graduates were only taken as far as Nairobi and had to do all sorts of things with guns pointed at them and they were also given drugs to make them perform.
4) You could end up being someone's sex slave. With no legal papers, locked up in a house for days, months even years and then disposed of when they are done with you. Yes, in like killed.
5) This scenario should not shock you. Imagine I arrange for you to fly out of Entebbe being as desperate as you are acting. I tell my contacts to give you brand new suitcases and buy you everything. Take you to the airport, drop you off, I am in Guangzhou on business so you are flying to meet me. The bags are already lined with dope. Entebbe people, we bribe and get through. Transit in Hong Kong, it is one of the busiest airports in the world so you might get through. Arrival in Guangzhou, you get through I kiss you give you some money and then send you back home and tell you to return in a few weeks. Same thing happens..third time you get busted. I hear you are busted, I am out of that country like a flash. Then see below what happens:

China executes Ugandans over drugs
Chinese authorities have executed two Ugandans convicted of trafficking narcotics, the Foreign Affairs ministry has announced.
Ministry spokesperson Fred Opolot yesterday identified the convicts as Omar Ddamulira and Ham Andrew Ngobi.
“Ddamulira was executed on May 21, 2014 while Ngobi was killed last week (June 24),” he said. “Their bodies were cremated but we have initiated talks with the Chinese government to return the ashes to their families.”
Mr Opolot said the two men’s families were allowed to talk to them on phone before they were executed.
By June 2012, Uganda’s embassy in China had compiled a list of 23 Ugandans who had been sent on death row in China over drug trafficking while another 22 were serving life in jail over similar offences.

Joseph Kiberu Mulindwa, Sara Basima, Alex Kayiwa, Benjamin Bisuka, Derrick Kiryowa, Willy Musoke, Ambrose Tsimi, Scovia Nakintu, John Luke Wasonye, Peter Wamoka and Geoffrey Ogwal.
....a number of people serving long prison sentences in China, Japan and Kenya.
These include Paulo Kato serving life in prison in China, Noah Sekabira jailed for 14 years in Japan and Fred Kerry Kiggundu who is serving 12 years in Japan for trafficking drugs.
Another Ugandan, Julian Kiconco, was sentenced to nine years imprisonment in neighbouring Kenya, while Faith Okai is still battling her case in court in China, according to Kasingye.
He said the Interpol were hunting for two suspected Nigerian drug barons believed to have lured some of the Ugandans into drug trafficking which landed them in trouble abroad.
The Nigerian suspects were identified as Arthur Martin Omenaudo and Tony Ugochucwu.
