Five Kenyans trapped in worrying conditions in Malaysia appeal for help
Five Kenyan men who went to Malaysia in search of greener pastures are now seeking help to return to the country.
The five, Sospeter Ngahu from Bungoma, Charles Macharia from Nairobi and Geoffrey Maina from Kiambu, Dickson Otieno and David Nyamanga from Kisumu, were seen in a video showing their current living conditions, residing under the stairs of an abandoned warehouse.
According to a video seen by NTV, they claimed to have been taken to Malaysia by a Kenyan agent who promised them a better life.
Once in the country, the Kenyan agent sold them to a Malaysian agent called Annand, who took them to a shipping company.
The men, who appear to be talking to a Malaysian man, appear frustrated when the man asks them to leave the warehouse home.
“We don’t have money for transport to go from here to the bus station. The auntie did not pay us our money. You allowed us to work this month knowing what you were going to do to us,” one man told the Malaysian man.
The men claim to have worked for five months without pay, and upon asking for their salaries, they were kicked out.
They are now calling on the Kenyan government to help them get back home.
“All we would like to ask for is help. We have tried all we could to no avail; we have spoken to the Kenyan Embassy, who are now asking for money. We don’t have money; as we’ve shown you, we are struggling,” they said.
The men also said they sent an email to the United Nations asking for help to no avail.
