Police arrested a Kuwaiti national and senior embassy official believed to be part of a human trafficking syndicate that is luring female job seekers to Kuwait on the pretext that they have secured decent employment, when, in actual fact, they are being sold into prostitution and menial jobs. Brenda Avril May, 62, a secretary at the Kuwaiti Embassy in Harare, is suspected to have been facilitating or processing visas for the victims, who are now stuck in the Arab emirate. May was released after being interviewed by the police. Over 200 Zimbabwean women are believed to be stranded in Kuwait after being promised jobs.
