The Kenyan government has been sued for allegedly failing to protect five Nepalese women who were trafficked into the country for sexual exploitation.

According to Awareness Against Human Trafficking (HAART), the government failed to provide appropriate care for five Indian and Nepalese women.

“After four months, the victims just want to go home. They have become deeply traumatized and suicidal. Some have been hospitalized and we have filed a complaint against the government so that all victims of trafficking are not compelled to testify, and the government pays for their speedy and safe repatriation,” Sophie Otiende, program consultant for HAART Kenya told Reuters.
