A Kenyan student stuck in Wuhan, China, has accused the government of abandoning its citizens in the virus-hit city that is under lockdown.
Jeffrey Okundi told Kenya's privately-owned Citizen TV that he is disheartened to see other countries repatriate their students while he is ignored by his government.
Kenya has walked back on a promise made two weeks ago to repatriate students from Wuhan once the lockdown ends. Its Ambassador to China Sarah Serem on Monday said the students will remain there and offered a prayed for their safety.
Mr Okundi decried the lack of communication from the government, saying he received one call from the ambassador few weeks ago. He said he only saw on social media an announcement that the government will not repatriate them from Wuhan.
