According to information shared on Facebook by Rockfreaq, Wanja Kimani is working in a hostile environment in Saudi Arabia and this has become a threat to her life. The agency that took her to Saudi Arabia is reluctant to help.

According to a long post shared on Facebook, Wanja Kimani left Kenya on 7th March 2021 and landed in Saudi Arabia on 8th March 2021. This was after she saw a post on Facebook advertising house to house cleaning jobs in Saudi Arabia. The thirty thousand Kenya shillings quoted attracted Wanja, but to her surprise, the salary quoted during the signing of agreement was Ksh 24,000. Though Wanja was reluctant to sign the contract, she was forced to do so.

When Wanja landed in Saudi Arabia, her passport was taken away and phones were confiscated. She ended up in an old house. She has persevered alot as she goes through hard times in the house. She has suffered an electric shock, goes hungry and lives j fear of being imprisoned. She has complained to the agency but she haven't received any help.

Wanja has now decided to call upon the public to help her get back home.

It is so sad reading such traumatizing stories of our Kenyan ladies in Saudi Arabia. We hope Wanja will get help soonest.
