Body Of Woman Who Died In Saudi Has Missing Tongue

Body of woman who died in Saudi missing tongue.

Her family members in Mombasa is now demanding justice for her after she died in Saudi Arabia in mysterious circumstances.

Kenya’s Foreign Ministry says 89 Kenyans, most of them domestic workers, have died in Saudi Arabia in the past two years.

The woman's relatives, which have been trying to get answers after their daughter died in the gulf, said efforts to have her remain ferried back to the country have hit a snag.

Saudi authorities told their Kenyan counterparts that most of the deaths were from cardiac arrest.

Speaking to Citizen TV, the bereaved family said Mwanahamisi had expressed concerns over her safety days before she died in March 2023 and further dismissed the report that she harmed herself.

But abuse of foreign domestic workers has long been a problem in Saudi Arabia and the Kenyan ministry this week admitted that it never conducted independent investigations.

The family of the 36-year-old mother of six said they want a thorough probe and help to get the remains of their kin.

With very little opportunity at home, many see working in Arab countries as a ticket out of poverty in a country where about 40% of the population lives below the poverty line.
