“Ninaishi kama chokora hapa Saudia. Naomba msaada nirudi Kenya, kama nikufa, nifie nyumbani. Sijakula siku mbili. Mateso ya Saudi yamenichosha,” Emmanuel Mwangi Munyoki has appealed for help.
“I went to Saudi Arabia on July 19, 2022. When I got there, they gave me a job but they were not paying me as agreed. The boss once assaulted me over these arguments. I wanted to go to the embassy but my agency urged me not to do that. They promised to solve the matter.
“My first job was preparing shawarma. My contract was 9 hours a day but I ended up working for 15 hours. Sny complaints were not responded to. The company that brought us here took our passports. They transferred me to another job where I carry metals. I am now sick and bleeding. I told them that I was sick. I am unable to work, They told me that they are giving me an exit to Kenya but I have to buy the air ticket. I went to the embassy but they don’t me to look for air ticket money.
“Kula ni shida. Tunalala tu kwa room. Agents hawachukui simu tena. Tuko Wakenya wawili. Tunaweza kusema sisi ni machokora hapa. Kule embassy, huyo bwana yuko hapo hasaidii watu Huku nje kuwa Wakenya wengi wanakaa kama machokora. Hawasaidiki. Huko nje nako ukishikwa, ni shida. Niko na Mkenya mmoja hapa ana matatizo kama yangu. Yuaitwa Abdalla Muhaji. Kampuni imetukodeshea nyumba lakini hawatusaidii. Shida ni hiyo hiyo,” Emmanuel told TUKO.
Emmanuel urged the government to intervene and assist him and other Kenyans suffering in Saudi Arabia. You can reach out to him via +254114837990/ +966547415905.
