Woman from Kenya dies after ‘jumping’ from a building in Jordan

Kenyan lady who had been working in Jordan was last week found dead even as 17 others cry out for help to be brought back home.
A Jordan newspaper reports indicate that the woman, whose name was not given but aged 22, jumped from the second floor of a building at the University of Jordan Street in Amman.
“Preliminary investigation does not indicate the existence of criminal suspicion,” local newspaper, Al-Ghad, reported last week quoting an anonymous security source in Amman.
A Kenyan working in Jordan Sunday said that the 17 are stuck in Amman because they are unable to get their passports which were confiscated by their employers.
“The seventeen Kenyan workers came to Jordan to be employed as domestic workers but after a few months, they demanded to be taken back.
“The workers union said it was ready to help them but it turned out some of them do not have passports and have been unable to reach to their embassy for help,” the paper reported
