Joshua Laban Musinguzi, Who has been Ag. Head of External Labour Monitoring Unit (ELM), is now the coordinator for Parliamentary Forum on Labour, Decent Employment and Productivity.
In a letter dated June 1, Hon. Roland Ndyomugenyi the Chairperson of the Forum informed Musinguzi that he was the successful candidate for the post of the coordinator.
“I am happy to inform you that after the interviews and the presentation you made, you have been successful,” reads part of the letter.”
Adding, “The forum has not had any funding yet, and as discussed, you will be required to generate income through proposals writing, funders identification and any other methods you may employ to bring in the required funding for the forum’s operations and activities,”
The Forum will therefore pay Laban basing on the revenue he will have collected during every month.
It is also stated in the letter that Laban will be stationed at the Secretariat Headquarters with travels in and out of the country.
“We congratulate you on your appointment and wish you a long career with us. We assure you a great journey and full support for your professional growth and development,”
Laban has shown practical results at the External Labor Monitoring Unit by intervening in the affairs of suffering migrant workers and rescuing them from tyrant employers. For instance, he intervened and rescued Margaret Nabulya who was allegedly raped and house imprisoned in Saudi Arabia.
