  • Description

    Kenya's Central Organisation of Trade Unions, COTU, is concerned at the conditions being offered to Kenyans recruited for work is Saudi Arabia. COTU'S acting secretary-general, Justus Mulei, told a news conference in Nairobi on Monday (6 June) that his organisation will raise the issue at an International Labour Organisation conference in Geneva later this month.

    MR Mulei was speaking after allegations that Kenyans are being offered "slavery" terms and conditions. So far an estimated 400 people have been recruited and COTU is concerned because Saudi Arabia has no trade unions to protect the workers.
