Hima cement asked to compensate former Kabarole child laborers

Hima cement and its partner suppliers Lafarge  have been asked to compensate former child laborers who used to work in the Lafarge stone quarry in Harugongo Kabarole district.

Addressing journalists together with the human rights network, the team leader Tweraneho listeners club, Gerald Kankya said it was timely to compensate and support these children for the time wasted while working in these quarries where they were immensely violated.

Kankya argued that these children neglected school to work in these quarries adding that ever since they lost their jobs, they are living in a deplorable situation.

Meanwhile the coordinator Human Rights network Patrick Tumwine said the call is in relation with United Nations guiding principles for companies to protect human rights and also ensure access to remedy to business abuse.
