The Thai Consulate in Uganda Barbara Mulwana is on the spotlight after a section of Ugandans complained of her “miss conduct” in the office.
This is after she allegedly denied several Ugandans Visas to the Asian Nation Under unclear circumstances and has also been accused of being arrogant and disrespectful to Ugandans applying for Visa.
One of those reportedly upset and frustrated is Ugandan super model Judith Heard who has been complaining to whoever cares to listen about the official especially on social media.
In a long statement which has been circulating like wild fire on social media, Heard claims Barbara has turned the Thai Consulate in Uganda into an arena for sorting out personal vendettas.
“This woman has turned the office of the Thai Honorary Consulate into her vendetta business. She is no longer issuing Visas on merit – She even bragged to her receptionist that if someone isn’t in my good book – No Visa! Today she denied everyone who applied for the Visa (15 People) just because they were going to a party in Thailand”. Heard said.
She also claims the lady “who brags a lot” has also made it hard for Ugandans who have tried the Thai Consulate in Kenyan for help.
She is now on a mission to expose her and also calls for government intervention into the matter.
By the time we went to press, there was neither any response from the Consulate nor comment from government.
Below is the full statement attributed to Judith Heard on the issue.
“We need to expose this woman and also report her misconduct to Thailand authorities who gave her the mandate to issue visas to Ugandans going to Thailand.
This woman has turned the office of the Thai Honorary Consulate into her vendetta business. She is no longer issuing Visas on merit – She even bragged to her receptionist that if someone isn’t in my good book – No Visa! Today she denied everyone who applied for the Visa (15 People) just because they were going to a party in Thailand.
She then closed the office and said she would return on the 10th Feb 2020 – Indicating that if you need a visa to Thailand urgent, you won’t get it. Thailand is a holiday destination and Visas should be readily attainable, but our cold-hearted Ugandans are again disfranchising fellow Ugandans.
What’s wrong with ugandans? Someone gives you an office to serve people, and you abuse those powers like some Demi-god? You treat fellow Ugandans like there beneath you just because you have the mandate to issue visas? To make matters worse, I have it on good authority that she has also instructed the Kenyan Thai Consulate to denied any Ugandan who reapplies in Kenya.
So we’re supposed to travel on 14th Feb 2020, and we’re now looking for an alternative. We have also called the Thailand Authorities, and they advised that if you have a hotel + flight + 500 BHT per day, a visa shouldn’t be denied – So what reasons does she have”
