KUWAIT CITY, July 26: Ambassador of Guinea to Kuwait HE Mamady Traoré revealed that he has suggested to the Ministry of Security and Social Protection in his country to suspend sending Guinean domestic workers to Kuwait until completion of procedures with the embassy to organize and regulate their travel and employment in Kuwait, reports Al-Qabas daily.
During an interview with the Guinea News, Ambassador Traoré said the ambassadors of Benin, Senegal and Togo have taken a series of measures with their governments in this aspect which have reduced the problems faced by members of their communities in Kuwait.
The ambassador’s remarks came after a Guinean domestic worker Kady Sago Bah last week sustained multiple injuries and fractures all over her body after she jumped from the fourth floor of a building to escape from her employer.
According to the ambassador, the victim told him, when he visited her in the hospital, that she had no choice but to jump because she was deprived of food. He indicated that there are about 20 other Guinean domestic workers who are facing problems in Kuwait, and the embassy is currently working on finalizing procedures for their repatriation.
