53 tweeps followed (thank you!) and 44 unfollowed (goodbye!) me in the past week. Thank you https://t.co/3HEAVCdZc1.

I thank you all for the insightful and progressive notes you shared with us and each other. Hopefully soon, we will see what we are fighting for, come to pass. With those few words, I officially bring this meeting to a close.

"Do you know the age of your house maid? You could be unknowingly perpetrating #humantrafficking, through the process of how you got your house-help. Many home-owners in Kampala and other major towns are guilty of this heinous crime."

"In dealing with trafficking cases with other nations, we engage with extreme diplomacy. Stakeholders need to be tact in their approach. When approaching an embassy, you say, our countryman is "stranded" in your nation' but not 'trafficked'.
