A suspected human trafficking agent on Tuesday afternoon reportedly attempted to commit suicide after she was beaten by a group of women sheltered at the Zimbabwean embassy in Kuwait.
The agent, who also sought refuge at the embassy, reportedly attempted to end her life inside one of the toilets using a belt to strangle herself but was rescued after another saw her and called for help.
A source who is aware of what is going on said the woman is accused of facilitating travel arrangements for some of the over 200 women trafficked to Kuwait on the promise of rich pickings in the Gulf country.
As of yesterday, 20 women were reportedly still staying at the embassy, while they wait for the Zimbabwean government to facilitate their return home. The agent, whose name has been withheld, was allegedly attacked by Zimbabweans and a few Ghanaians, who joined in, although it could not be ascertained why the West Africans were housed at the Zimbabwean embassy.
