Tycoon Garuga’s Workers Strike Over Pay

Tycoon James Garuga [C] the owner of Kigezi Highland Tea Company

Over 100 casual labors at Kigezi Highland Tea Company Limited owned by tycoon James Musinguzi Garuga on Monday stormed the offices of the Kabale district labor officer over unpaid salaries for the last three months.

They claim the company has failed to pay their salaries and that company supervisor Frank Byaruhanga has kept a deaf ear to their pleas.

The workers led by Emmanuelle Sabiiti say told district officials they were overwhelmed by financial constraints at home yet they worked full time at the company.
