    Kenyans warned of high-paying jobs in Myanmar (Southeast Asia).

    Published on

    On Wednesday, November 16th, the Kenyan Embassy in Bangkok issued a warning to job-seekers to beware of jobs in Myanmar, Southeast Asia.

    The embassy issued the advisory after learning that, despite prior warnings about the risks associated with the jobs, desperate Kenyans were still traveling to Myanmar.

    Authorities have cautioned Kenyans against engaging with shady recruitment brokers who have been posting ads for the positions in question.

    Further, officials cautioned that Kenyans who rush for the aforementioned occupations risk losing their lives owing to the aggressive temperament of certain employers they meet.
    Upon arriving in the country, Kenyans are assigned goals connected to cybercrime that they are expected to achieve in the course of their employment. Those who fail to deliver are reportedly subjected to severe punishments such as beatings, imprisonment, and starvation for many days.

    The Embassy has reported that one of their biggest problems is that some Kenyans still choose to live in Myanmar and Lao PDR despite being warned about the dangers.
