Today in Nairobi, demonstrations were held over domestic mistreatments in Middle East especially Saudi Arabia with the slogan #Stophumantrafficking.
The demonstrators marched to the office of Ministry of Foreign affairs demanding that the Saudi Arabia Embassy should be closed.
This comes after several cases of unresolved deaths of girls who travel to Saudi Arabia to work and look for green pastures but their dreams are short lived but shortly come back dead or even with broken body parts. The recent case reported of someone who returned back with a broken spinal cord.
An outcry from families demanding justice for the victims who have died under unclear circumstances while working in the Saudia Arabia.
The demonstrators have expressed their concern on young girls being lured of lucrative jobs by rouge agents but shock awaits them when they reach Saudi Arabia only to be turned sexual slaves, being overworked for instance serving 14-20 family members something that they are not informed when they travel.
Bitter returnees from Saudi Arabia, have asked the Kenyan Government to amend laws and create trusted agents that can be held responsible in case of such issues arising.
Alarm has been raised by deceased victims over missing body parts when postmortem is conducted.
Some of the body parts missing are the kidney, heart, liver eyes, bone marrow sins of torture and starvation. This is very suspicious as now families believe their daughters were taken to Saudi Arabia to work but smuggled for human trafficking.
