Please DON’T go to the Middle East to work as a domestic help! Photos of a Kenyan girl brought back home from the Middle East where she was burnt like nyama choma by her employer made many shed tears!
The plight of Mary Kibwana Kamango prompted Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko to threat to hold peaceful demonstration against Lebanese and Saudi embassies in Nairobi to demand for their immediate closure.
The Nairobi Senator who was instrumental in bring Mary back to Kenya, dispatched his ambulance to pick her from JKIA and take her to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment when she landed back home.
Mary was SEVERELY burnt by her employer in the Middle East. Sonko revealed her evil boss deliberately set her on fire on 17 April 2016 as she was going about her chores.
“Our investigation revealed that on 17th April 2016 while Mary was attending to her normal duties her employer deliberately set up the gas cylinder causing fire that injured her severely.
Despite her calls for help, she was neglected and ignored only to be rescued by a neighbour who managed to put off the fire. Later that day, her mobile phone was confiscated by her useless employer while she was taken to hospital. It took several days before her family got information of her tragedy. The cell phone number for her employer who set ablaze our Kenyan sister is +962795681190. Due to the nature of Mary's injuries, she was transferred back to Kenya.” Sonko wrote in part.
Mary succumbed to her injuries two months after being admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital for specialized treatment.
Despite her tragic death and increased cases of Africans being mistreated in the Middle East, Kenyans continue to fly to Saudi Arabia and other Arab states in search of blue-collar jobs.
