    A Kenyan woman is accusing her Saudi employer of throwing her out of a third floor window, breaking her legs and hands. Another maid, just rescued by relatives, said she had to live on dog food because her employers neither fed her nor allowed her out of the house.


    Ms Fatma Athman, of Kisauni, Mombasa, returned to the country last week with broken limbs and stories of near-slavery in Saudi Arabia where she was employed as a maid last May. She was lucky, she said, she landed in a swimming pool and not on the pavement. Now she is dependent on others to help her even with the simplest of chores.


    "I and one of my friends were asked by Saudis who visited Kenya eight months ago to go with them. We organised everything through the Kenyan embassy - our agent - and we got documents to travel to the Middle East on May 2 last year," she said. On arrival, she said, she was discriminated against and required to work 22 hours a day.

    Je hakuna uwezekano wa kum sue huyo employer wake? au sheria inasemaje?

    Inaumiza sana utumwa unapoendelea kwa kutumia sharia. Mwanamke na mtu mweusi inaonekana hana thamani kabisa Uarabuni.

    Kama wanawake wa Kiarabu hawana haki nchini Saudi Arabia, unategemea nini kwa mwanamke mweusi asie raia nchi hii?

    Waarabu watastaarabika lini na kuacha ukatili na manyanyaso kwa wanawake?

    Ng'wanza Madaso,

    Sheria lazima itamfavor mwenyeji. Hivi visa kibao kweli lakini hamna lolote
    linalofanyika. What bothers me is why the respective Ambassadors don't
    issue protest notes through the right diplomatic channels. Most of the
    time utawasikia wakisema eti wanafanya uchunguzi.For what when the
    thing is so obvious.

    Hapa sasa hata sijui haya mafunzo ya ubaguzi yanatokana na mila/desturi
    ama ni dini? Nasikia hawa watu wa Saudia wanaamini watu weusi ni
    watumwa (slaves) in this age and time. Very backward society to say the
    least hata kama hela wanazo.

    Hii incident inauma sana wakuu. Acha niachie hapo maana naeza kusema
    mambo ambayo kwamba yatawakwaza mashabiki wa hawa waarabu.

    God save our people.
    Amen.
