The families say they decided to write directly to the president after they were allegedly denied audience by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Kenyans were arrested on May 29, 2015 by the National Security Service of South Sudan after working in the country for almost two years for the company owned by President Salva Kiir’s brother-in-law Mr John Ogou, who also is a politician.
