Power, water cut in a bid to force single men to move out from their flats



Dozens of expatriate workers in Kuwait were forced to sleep outdoors for five nights after the electricity and water in the building where they lived was cut in a bid to force single men from their flats. This comes amid an ongoing campaign by the Municipality to evict “bachelors” living in Kuwaiti family areas. Block 2 in Farwaniya is included in the “bachelor ban”, although none of the single men – who are legal residents of Kuwait – were given prior notice that they needed to vacate their apartments.-K.T.
