Thirty two Zimbabwean women returned from Kuwait on 30 April 2016. These women had been lured into Kuwait by network of criminals who arranged their visas and paid for their air tickets.
Even officials of the Kuwaiti embassy were involved in this horrendous human trafficking.

When the women arrived in Kuwait they were forced into commercial sex work and domestic labor by Arab men. Their passports and cell phones were confiscated. Some were beaten and
denied food by these evil hearted, cruel and sadist men. Speaker of the National Assembly Advocate Jacob Mudenda said, “The experience that the women went through was touching.”
While in Kuwait some of the women were detained by police. Some managed to escape and sort shelter by the Zimbabwe embassy. Kuwait is a country without much human rights for women.
According to Human Rights Watch report, ‘Kuwait has no laws prohibiting domestic violence, sexual harassment, or marital rape.’
Human trafficking is a fast growing global crime and its nature is a secret and complex. Traffickers take advantages of men, women and children from poor countries such as Zimbabwe and others.
Human Trafficking Task Force (South Africa) exists to expose human trafficking (modern day slavery) through awareness promoting, victim’s assistance and rescue efforts.
