A sombre mood engulfed the Jomo Kenyatta International Hospital (JKIA) as the bodies of three women, Mercy Mbula, Lucy Kea and Jackeline Muthoni arrived in coffins from Saudi Arabia for burial on the Kenyan grounds.
The three Kenyan women died in Saudi Arabia while working. Their bodies were repatriated by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko. Mercy Mbula came from Kagunda, Lucy Kea was from Mtwapa and Jackeline Muthoni lived in Imenti South.
According to the video posted by Mike Sonko, the families of the deceased could not hide their grief while receiving the bodies of their loved ones. Mike Sonko promised to take care of the mortuary bills ahead of the trio's burial at their homes.
Lucy Kea's body was transported to Jocham Hospital Mortuary in Mombasa, where it shall be preserved until the burial date. The other two bodies were taken to their respective home mortuaries.
The causes of their death are still unknown and Kenyans have complained about the Arab's treatment of Kenyans. The Kenyan government has devised a mechanism to address the maltreatment of Kenyans in Saudi Arabia. Kenyans facing difficulties were urged to contact +966 500 755 060 for help.
