    Information/translation.. 
    A report by the Ugandan newspaper Semaphore revealed, on Tuesday, that thousands of Ugandans are preparing to file lawsuits against the United States because of their security work guarding buildings belonging to the American army in Iraq and Afghanistan. 
    The report, translated by the Maalouma Agency, stated that the lawsuits included the failure of their former employers to pay their agreed-upon wages and their failure to cover medical bills, which led to many of them being seriously injured and drowning in debt. 
    The report added that "thousands of Ugandans were guarding the buildings of US military institutions and bases in Iraq and Afghanistan following the military invasion of both countries from 2005 to 2022, and they were recruited by private security companies contracted by the US Department of Defense at the time," indicating that " The guards, who were cheaper than American employees, helped meet the need for enhanced security at American buildings after they became targets for attacks following the overthrow of Saddam's regime in Iraq and the fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan.
    He continued, "The companies against which lawsuits were filed included an explosive ordnance disposal technology company based in Tennessee, a special operations consulting company, and a Virginia-based Constellations company. Last month, the Ugandan government gave its support to the former workers seeking compensation after they presented ministers with documents to support their demands." , including employment letters after a campaign by a group of more than 130,000 former Ugandan contractors.”
    The Special Returnees Association, a Ugandan umbrella organization for former security guards in Iraq and Afghanistan with more than 130,000 members, said it "may take collective legal action" on behalf of thousands of its members to seek financial compensation and payment of medical costs for those injured.
    The report indicated that “six Ugandans were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to documents submitted to the Ugandan government, while 48 later died of wounds they sustained in war zones.”
    Ugandans were not the only Africans appointed to protect American buildings, as the US Department of Defense also recruited security companies from Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique, Burundi and a number of West African countries. Ended / 25 D
