    A Tanzanian woman was kept as a slave for four years in the London home of a retired doctor, a court has heard. Mwanahamisi Mruke, 47, who arrived from Tanzania in October 2006, was allegedly made to sleep on the floor and fed two slices of bread a day while working for Saeeda Khan, 68.

    Mruke said she was paid £120 for her first year's work, and received no pay for the next three years, while her daughter in Tanzania was sent £21 a month for two years. Khan, of Harrow, north-west London, denies trafficking Mruke into the UK to exploit her. The trial continues at Southwark crown court.
