Security guards attached to Saracen Uganda Ltd have gone on strike demanding that the management solves a salary disparity.
The angry workers claim that they earn Sh140, 000 per month and that the meager salary is paid in installments.
The workers poured in the road and attempted to block the entrance to the Saracen offices at Lugogo by-pass.
"We are protecting billions, but earning Sh140, 000. I have a family. I pay rent. I pay fees for my children. We want a reasonable salary," Geoffrey Okello, one of the guards told New Vision.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, the workers tried to force themselves inside the gate of the company but they were repulsed by the Saracen point guards, who shot in the air.
