State should protect Kenyans abroad, urges Munyao

From the Standard

Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Munyao has appealed to President Kibaki to take action against the mistreatment of Kenyan women working in Saudi Arabia.

Munyao yesterday complained the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not come out strongly to defend victims. “Even the Kenyan Ambassador in Saudi Arabia, where these atrocities are happening before his eyes, appears to be silent,” said Munyao.

In an open letter to the President, he accused the Saudi Arabian Government of perpetuating neo-slavery against innocent women in pursuit of greener pastures.

The DP leader said it is a shame public officers, who are tasked with responsibility of safeguarding the rights of Kenyans abroad, have failed to carry out their duty.
