President Museveni has been the president in Uganda since 1986. In a country where more than 75 percent of the population is below 35 years, many have never known any other president. Lately, many youth have voiced their support of artist and member of Parliament, Bobi Wine, as someone who could bring about real change. Some have compared the situation in the country to a pressure cooker waiting to explode. But how is the situation in Uganda? And is there a future without Museveni in sight?

I 2016 gikk vinarbeiderne ved Robertson Winery i Western Cape-regionen til streik for bedre arbeids- og leveforhold. Mange av dem manglet tilgang til rent drikkevann eller nok mat. De jobbet med farlige sprøytemidler uten beskyttelsesutstyr.

Vinen de produserer, selges i stort monn på det norske Vinmonopolet.

Hvordan er situasjonen for vinarbeiderne i dag? Har Vinmonopolet noe ansvar for vinarbeidernes arbeidsvilkår?

Møt CSAAWUs generalsekretær, Trevor Neil Christians og Francina Sanna Herandien for en oppdatering fra vinmarkene.
