It is disheartening to know that even after running massive online campaigns and initiating viral testimonies to discourage Cameroonian ladies from traveling to Kuwait and Lebanon as domestic slaves, some ladies still brave the odds to travel to those poor countries that have no respect for human rights.
I could not hold back venting my anger on a lady who wrote to me minutes ago, requesting that I come to her rescue in Kuwait. She says in our private conversation that she wakes up at 6am every day, and has never stepped out the house for the last 2 years on her own. "I am in trouble," she notes.
When will some ladies learn to listen? Are some brains filled with coconut water?
I will not be risking my own life to fight for citizens who deliberately do not listen. Too bad. "Any man yi head for yi neck," they say.
Listen to voices of young Cameroonian girls testifying on the Cameroon state broadcaster CRTV, how they were trafficked from Cameroon to Kuwait and Lebanon and forced to work as ‘’slaves.’’
They claim that all Cameroonians who act as ombudsmen for those seeking visas to travel to the aforementioned countries are dubious and are the major actors in human trafficking. The girls noted that while in the Middle Eastern countries, African girls risk being killed if they do not obey their masters.
The testimonies were sectioned out from CRTV’s best selling radio program Cameroon Calling.
