In a viral video that has been making rounds on social media, the young lady complained of a number of things that she is being subjected to by her employers. "They treat me like a slave," she said explaining the physical assault and harassment she goes through.

The 29-year-old who is a university graduate says that she opted for a cleaning job in Saudi Arabia. The mother of two left Kenya in pursuit of greener pastures in the country oblivious of what was waiting for her there. According to her, she has been working in Saudi Arabia for the last three months without any pay.

The lady said that she was told that upon arrival in Saudi Arabia, she would be cleaning institutions, offices and other buildings. She also said that her employment agent promised that there could be accommodation provided in one of the institution's hostels. However, things changed when she arrived.

She says that she works for about twenty hours for seven days a week. The lady revealed that the employers assume that everyone who goes there seeking for employment is illiterate and knows not their rights.

The employers ended up breaching the signed contract which according to her stated that she was supposed to work for six days a week and sleep for at least nine hours a day.

She is now seeking the government's help to bring her back home from the physical ad mental torture that she is going through in Saudi Arabia.
