    Female MPs reject sending maids to the Middle East.

    Published on

    In a recent appeal, the Kenya Women’s Parliamentary Association demanded that domestic workers be strictly prohibited from leaving the country for employment in the Middle East.

    Women’s political leaders in Kenya, led by Kewopa chairwoman Muthoni Wamuchomba, have called for a temporary halt to the exporting of Kenyan labor until more favorable conditions can be negotiated.

    Their worries stemmed from a recent incident in which a Kenyan housekeeper was seen on camera feeding her employer’s dogs.

    The lawmakers want a detailed breakdown of all recruitment agencies, the number of girls they’ve sent to Middle Eastern countries, and the state those girls are in now.

    They said that the situation of Kenyan women in Saudi Arabia amounted to modern-day slavery and should be denounced as such.

    The MPs are Liza Chelule (Nakuru MP), Dorothy Muthoni, Veronica Maina (nominated), and Prof. Phyllis Bartoo (Moiben) (nominated).
