Kenyan Family Passports Confiscated by Dubai Authorities

A Kenyan family that has been living in Dubai for the last 11 years is currently pleading with the Kenyan Government to intervene to have their passports released by the Dubai authorities.

Mwaura Muteria’s found themselves in the situation after its alleged that they had accrued house rent areas of over Ksh1.5 million.

Things started getting thick after the company that had employed Mwaura as a project manager terminated his contract in 2016.

Mwaura and his family kept living in Dubai having hopes of securing a new job, but never bore fruits hence the debt.

The landlord filed a criminal case against Muteria while he was in Kenya and when he returned to Dubai, he was arrested.

“I pleaded guilty and prayed to be released against my passport so that I could look for a job and start paying the money owed to the landlord,” he said.

“Though we had paid part of our rent in cash, the landlord told me that all legal expenses and the returned cheques must be paid in full before he withdraws the case and travel ban on my name,” he stated.

To add on that, their residence visas will be expiring before the end of the week, which will lead to them being forced to pay overstay fines of up to Ksh2000 per day if they don’t travel out of the county within a week.

“I cannot raise this amount, and we are seeking assistance to offset the bill,” he continued.
