Diana Chepkemoi, who is said to be stranded and being detained against her will in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, was freed thanks to the efforts of leaders and some Kenyans when her photo of her appeared while she was in a terrible situation and went viral on social media.

The statement comes after an audio of his employer surfaced threatening to deal with her for being disrespectful and arrogant. 

In the audio, the employer is heard warning Chepkemboi of dire consequences for hatching plans to escape.

However, Amb. Macharia Kamau, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated that the matter has been followed up by relevant authorities and that Chepkemoi is under good care.

Chepkemoi’s story sparked widespread condemnation from Kenyans who called on the government to intervene and save the girl.
