Diana Chepkemoi Gets Another Full Scholarship After Rejoining University

A week after Diana Chepkemoi received a full scholarship and a job from Meru university, a well-wisher has offered to fund her education.

Speaking during Chepkemoi's first day at Meru University on Wednesday, September 14, Rodgers Kipembe noted that his generous gesture was not politically motivate.

"I learnt about Chepkemoi's misfortunes through social media and decided that I will touch her life by settling her four-year fees which I have come here to do," Kipembe stated.

He challenged leaders and the government to step in and rescue other Kenyans in the Gulf and adopt measures to protect Kenyans abroad.

The university Vice Chancellor Romanus Otieno echoed Kipembe's words and encouraged more Kenyans to adopt the philanthropic philosophy.

In addition, he noted that Chepkemoi's case is a special one among other horrific cases from the Gulf that have flooded the media.

According to the varsity don, the university has placed Chepkemoi on the work-study program.

“She will also enjoy a flexible schedule to study and serve within the University library and at the same time be granted accommodation within the University,” the VC declared.

The 24-year-old was elated for rejoining the university after she differed to work as a domestic worker in Saudi Arabia.

“I wish my case will be an example that will make Kenyans come to realisation that there are people suffering out there in silence and as a result come to their rescue,” she stated after joining the university.

Diana Chepkemoi's story made headlines after she pleaded with Kenyans online to rescue her from Saudi Arabia where she was allegedly tortured and mistreated.

After Kenyans persuaded the government to take action, she was flown back into the country.

"I plead with the government to rescue our people. They are psychologically and mentally tortured. It's a shame being told that there is nothing the government can do." she sadly stated after landing.

Despite the horrid cases, more Kenyans were spotted flying out to the Gulf with hopes they had a different fate
