Sitaki Kuona: Ex-Qatar Employee Refuses To Watch World Cup Over Mistreatment.

The World Cup in Qatar signalled employment opportunities for many who were looking for a means of fending for their loved ones.Some Kenyans didn't mind moving to Qatar if that meant their families would be in a better position financially,despite the gory tales from the gulf.Thirty-eight-year-old Boniface Barasa,football lover and an ex-worker in the gulf,said he hasn't watched any football matches since the tournament began because the wounds of mistreatment in UAE are still fresh and hurt deeply.The former migrant worker in Qatar told CNN's Larry Madowo what he had seen while in the Middle East.

Although figures from the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) revealed that workers from Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda, figure prominently among those abused, they also show that labourers from Ghana and Togo, have been subjected to alleged labour violations.

Qatar has shut down 12 Kenyan employment agencies following pressure from the government and trade unions to ensure better treatment of migrant workers in the Gulf States.

Netizens reacts:
