TORTURED TO DEATH: SEE THE LIVING HELL KENYAN GIRLS WORKING AS MAIDS GOING THROUGH HELL IN THE ARAB WORLD......SEE WHAT THIS MAN WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA DOING TO A LADY IN HIS HOME!!
"Once the embassy is informed, it takes the fingerprints of these people for verification, after which we prepare travel documents for them and provide air tickers for those who cannot raise the money."
Harriet said last year the government assisted 800 stranded Kenyans to travel back home.
Most of these workers are sent to Saudi Arabia by suspicious agents, who are only known to them by their first names, but not through their official agencies; it thus becomes very difficult for the ministry to trace them.
Naomi's journey to Sakakah started when a broker by the name of Michael from Muguga in Kikuyu took her to an agent's office in a building near Jamia Mosque in Nairobi in early March this year. The office is run by a man called Kimemia and his wife. "Kimemia is the man with connections to agents in Saudi Arabia and he is the one who arranged for my visa and other travel documents. Two weeks later, I was on my way to Saudi Arabia."
Naomi and her colleagues who numbered more than 20 arrived at the Dammam King Fahd Airport in Saudi on March 18, where they thought their sponsor (employer) would come to pick them up. "We stayed at the airport for about a week, with only one meal per day that was supplied by the airport guards. We would either get breakfast, lunch or supper."

"The place is so far that we travelled the whole night and only arrived the following day at two in the afternoon." By that time the girls were so weary of the desert they were travelling through and more than homesick. The road trip between Dammam and Sakakah is slightly over 1,200km.
At Sakakah, their sponsors came for them and Naomi was taken by a woman with a family of five children "ranging in age from six years to three months". The first thing the employer did was to confiscate her mobile phone, telling her that she would only get it back after her two-year contract had expired. While her employer did not physically torture her, she could not stand washing all the six small children after they had soiled themselves and she wanted out.
Naomi insisted that she be taken back to the agent's office in Sakakah, where she sought alternative employment. She was taken by a woman who only had two children but she had just jumped from the frying pan to the fire. "The lady was about 30 years old but her husband was a much older chain-smoking man who appeared abnormal."
The lady treated me reasonably well, but the old man would most of time make incoherent noises and even laugh at nothing, and when Naomi enquired about his condition, she was simply told that he was sick.
Unfortunately Naomi had also to contend with her employer's sister who was staying with the family. She would order the maid to also wash her children, one who was over 10 years old, after they had visited the toilet." One day the woman even physically assaulted her...
