A 25-year-old Kenyan woman has come forward with allegations that she was kept as a domestic slave for three months by Saudi Arabian diplomats living in Northern Virginia.
The allegations come to light two weeks after News4 first reported an investigation into possible human trafficking at a Saudi-owned compound in McLean, Va.
The Kenyan woman -- who goes by the name Sheila -- said she was brought to the U.S. from Kenya by way of Saudi Arabia last summer, by people who forced her to work long hours each day, seven days a week, as a domestic worker.
"I used to work from 6 in the morning to 8, 10 in the evening," Sheila said by cell phone to News4's Jackie Bensen. "From Monday to Monday."
Did you ever have a day off? Bensen asked. "No," Shelia replied.

As far as Saudi Muslims are concerned, she’s a “Aabd”, or slave...beneath a regular human being.
maybe it is coincidental, but I know a Kenyan that has been keeping middle class Americans as slaves for 5 years.
But I digress....
Where’s the outrage from jesse jackson and his cohorts? Isn’t keeping slaves racist?
So when Saudi Arabia becomes exempt from customs they’ll be able to bring their slaves in without any pesky difficulties.
Was she a “slave slave?”
The IRS is all about tax slaves.
Did she call in from near Pennsylvania Avenue in D. C.?
Her visa has expired and she has no way to work...
She should go back to Kenya, and not work for Saudis any more.
No need to stay for a trial, because they’ll have diplomatic immunity. Her visa is expired; why is she here?
The Homeland Security guys are going to have issues with this one. There’s going to be speculation of more such domestic slaves, and the Saudi embassy crowd are going to feel heat. This gal? She might have an invalid visa but they’d have to run a sequence. She won’t be on a plane for at least a year, unless she’s begging them to let her leave.
I wouldn’t count on the Saudis getting any more visas for household employees. Too many questions.
This sounds to me like”Sexual Harassment”.This is”Obongo’s NEWEST Distraction from the manifold scandals circling overhead.He’ll have to give a speech to these Saudis!!!!!!!!
saudis go home
It also means black. Lazy arabs didn't even come up with a separate word for black and slave. Just goes to show what they really think of black folk.
I think all the wealthy Saudis in this country should be grabbed and enslaved themselves .
McLean - steps from CIA HQ - which the Saudis basically run these days.
Three months is probably worth the U.S. citizenship she’s sure to get.
Payback would be to let her boss her former “masters” around for three months.
The filthy koranimals don’t have a word for pedophilia either.
