Kenyans must be saved from torture in the Middle East
The ban on labour export to the Kingdom of Jordan is supposedly on as a result of a series of attacks on Kenyans working in the Middle Eastern country. Jordan, like many of her neighbouring countries in that region, source for human resource s abroad. They mostly get cheap labour from African countries. Because of ambivalence and the lack of political coherence, these African countries do not guarantee the safety and welfare for their citizens abroad. Predictably, African citizens have been handed terrible treatment in Jordan and, indeed, in the wider Arab region. Kenya continues to export thousands of workers to the Middle East, a majority of whom work in the service industry. The majority of them work as domestic workers and cases of extreme cruelty and mistreatment have and continue to be reported. A task force should be set up to unravel the level of rot in immigration of Kenyans to these countries .
