Domestic workers to be vetted, administrator says

25 April 2016, 17:49 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Domestic workers in Nyeri County will be vetted by administrators to avert cases of insecurity.

Nyeri South Deputy County Commissioner, Stephen Kamande said most domestic crimes are committed by farmhands and house helps who later disappear without a trace.

“Most crimes in Nyeri are committed by workers who are from other counties. We are taking a record of all of them to know their backgrounds and their record in government books,” said Kamande while speaking in Othaya.

He said some farmhands could have committed crimes in other areas and seek refuge as a domestic worker in Nyeri.

Kamande asked residents to support the move and report to their chief’s office with their workers while armed with identification card and other official documents.

He urged employers to be demanding ID cards from job seekers before absorbing them as their workers.

“We have people living with strangers in their homes. Some of these crimes can be dealt with through a working formula established by residents and the administration,” said Kamande.

He gave instance of a man who raped and killed a Form Three girl at Gatugi village in Othaya and later escaped though he was later arrested after several months.

Last year, a woman was also killed by her farmhand in Mukurweini.
