We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

A 23-year-old girl from Kajiado has arrived in the country on Friday after a harrowing tale of mistreatment in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi the Capital City of the United Arab Emirates.

Lillian Rimanto, 23, arrived in the country after 8 months of struggle to return to the country following reports that her personal belongings and identification documents were confiscated by her employer.

It took a secret visit to Dubai by Governor Joseph Ole Lenku in July to negotiate her evacuation to Kenya by the Kenyan Embassy in UAE through Ambassador Kariuki Mugwe.

Rimanto went to UAE last year and had only worked for one year before she fell out with her employer, forcing her to run away and seek refuge in a locality where several Kenyans live.

After Lenku worked around her evacuation, he paid for her air ticket, enabling her to arrive in the country.

Immediately after arrival, Rimanto, accompanied by her sister Lorna Lemayian and her aunt Peninah Soila headed straight to the Governor’s office in Kajiado town where she was received and welcomed back to the country before they headed to her home in Loitokitok.

“I see a brave girl who had managed to venture out of the country at 22 years. She has survived all the horrors and she is now back. We are happy that we have managed to return her safely. It is a big relief to us,” said Lenku.

Soila said their efforts to evacuate the girl had hit a deadlock until the governor intervened and secretly travelled to Dubai on a mission to rescue her.

“We had two options. To get Lillian back to Kenya alive or as a corpse. We are elated that she has come safe and healthy. It is a blessing to us and we thank the governor for coming out strongly for our family,” said Soila.
