Several young Kenyans usually grab an opportunity to go abroad for jobs which they believe that they will get good money out of traveling there.
Saudi Arabia has been the destination of several young ladies, but their expectations and experiences over there are below what they were told when being offered the jobs.
According to the Standard digital news reports, one of the ladies who has been identified as Wamboi (30 years old) is claimed to be held captive in Saudi after she had a minor disagreement with her employer.
The reports claim that her mother, Ann Wangari is in distress as she does not know whether her daughter is well or not because the last time they communicated she was very ill.
Ann Wangari has pleaded to the Government of Kenya to help try and get her daughter back as she was the breadwinner of her family as well as her 12 years old son.
"My daughter travelled to the Gulf, but she's held up captive. I have no option left. I want my daughter back home.
I can’t reach her because she has no phone. I don't know what is going on. I am pleading for help from the government of Kenya."
This is so worrying because several other ladies have died over in the Gulf countries as they usually claim that they are tortured by their employers, and they live in absolutely poor conditions.
How can the Government of Kenya help our suffering sisters?
