The desire to beat the poverty line and make a living has pushed many young Kenyan women to the gulf and as they have found out, the grass is not always greener at the other side with the latest video portraying troubled ladies pleading for help from the government.
Cases of women being mistreated in Saudi Arabia has been on the rise as they are tortured by their employers by being denied food, getting beaten and even killed for demanding to be paid for the services they render.
A video shared by Kenyans.co.ke has shown a group of women confined in one room asking for the government to come to their aid and help them reunite with their families as they claimed to be undergoing tough times in the gulf.
The audio indicates that the women would be willing to be deported back with the speaker urging her fellow Kenyans not to leave for Saudi Arabia in hope of changing their lives after her unbearable experience.
The government is yet to respond on the matter although it is expected they should, with the video likely to evoke a reaction from the netizens on the issue of job hunting in the Middle East.
