The school domiciled in Lanet, Nakuru county which educates women on how to live in the Saudi Arabia  has been accused of mistreating its trainees by denying them food and freedom.

About 80 women have escaped from the premises after they found out that their stay there was unfavorable to them. Others said that they were tricked by some agents to join the college.

According to a local daily, some women who were interviewed claimed that the institution does not allow anyone to leave until one completes their studies, emergencies notwithstanding.

“We are not allowed to leave, even if our children, siblings or parents are sick. We have to conclude our studies before we leave.” said one woman who sought anonymity.

She added that the agents who ferried them to the institution and paid for their training bind them in a contract that stipulates that they have to remain in the institution for the required month or in default refund Ksh120,000 allegedly spent on them.
