Mr Okwunwanne also commended President Museveni for his speech during the commemoration of the 2021 Labour Day celebrations where he condemns labour exports. Okwunwanne quoted President Museveni saying, “For me, I don’t believe in Labour export. Countries that externalize labour are countries that have missed something. I have proof. I have never seen South Koreans exporting labour, the only South Korean I have seen is Ban Ki-moon. South Korea is half the size of Uganda but you don’t see them. Me I am now for the south Korean approach.”
