Modern day Slavery


Forced labour in the Middle East.
Recent news in one of kenyan daily news paper regarding injustices done to workers from Kenya in Saudi Arabia is shocking and disgusting. The report allege that an international human traffiking ring is collaborating with some employees of some middle east embassies in Kenya to recruit unsuspecting Kenyans for jobs in Saudi Arabia. The criminal network is actually sending these people to forced labour. The cartel lure the victims by placing advertisements of well paying job oportunities in those countries.
In the recent past, scores of Kenyans have fallen prey to these crooks.
The reports about the forced labour came out after several incidents of human right abuse were reported to the Kenya government by the relatoves of the victims. Some deaths of victims were also reported in the last two years. But unfortunately the Kenya government has so far not taken the matters seriously. Who then can shield the Kenyans from this kind of abuse?
Why Kenyan youth take the risk.
Yoiths are easy prey because of serious unemployment on the country. The number of unemployed youths in Kenya has grown so much. Hence the incrrsing number of poor and rxcluded people who are at thereceaving end of the himan right violations.
The policy of exclution practiced by those in authority is not spoken, but os never the less building with respect to social disparities caused by poverty and unemployment of literate youth, which remain a political tiime bomb of numbers running ino millions.
