Painful After it Emerged 89 Kenyans Died In Saudi Died From Cardiac Arrest

For the past few years, Kenyans heading to Saudi Arabia have been warned of the scary situation in the foreign country.

However a majority of young ladies have given a deaf ear to these warnings and moved to the foreign nation only to return back dead.

However, during a briefing in parliament, Ps Kamau revealed some shocking details about deaths in Saudi Arabia.

In a report submitted to the National Assembly by Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Kamau Macharia adds a new dimension to cases of abuse of Kenyans working in Saudi Arabia that have in the past prompted the government to ban its citizens from seeking work in the country.

This year, 41 Kenyans have died in Saudi Arabia, 28 of them domestic workers. Last year, 48 Kenyans – 29 of them domestic workers – died in the Middle East nation.

The number of Kenyans reported to be in distress at the embassy in 2019 were 883, but the cases have risen to 1,025 in the last one year, according to the report submitted to the Labour committee on Thursday.

Parliament questioned how all people from the said country would die of the same disease, with many suspecting foul play.

Reactions

Joel... Saudi Arabia is the birth place of the most cruel religion in the world.. No wonder death there is almost certain for foreign workers..

Moses... We should as a country close the embassy and cut off diplomatic ties with that kingdom

Kenneth.. I normally hear of transplant but where is the market for that vital body part if not those innocent lives who are the victim of unethical conduct of those who call them selves people who are equated with everything.
