SAUDI ARABIA: A sickening video of a woman breastfeeding dogs has surfaced on several social media platforms recently. While the clip is nauseating enough, the story behind it will certainly make the ears pop. The video comes from a Kenyan woman who was allegedly forced to breastfeed dogs by her employer in Saudi Arabia. She claims that she had a baby two months ago, and the employer forced her to do the upsetting task as she was able to breastfeed during that time.

The woman from Kenya had left her husband and a two-month-old baby back at home, to work in Saudi Arabia where the degrading incident took place. The video reached Secretary General Francis Atwoli of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) who spoke forthrightly about the insulting and deviant act,He has now called on the President of Kenya William Ruto's government to ban employment agencies overseeing the migration of Kenyan workers in Saudi Arabia, as reported by NTV Kenya.

Atwoli received the video from the victim herself on Sunday, October 9, and chose to speak about the distressing inicident that the woman had to suffer with on that very day. "She left her husband and children in Kenya two months after giving birth. When they realized she can breastfeed, the employer gave her a job of breastfeeding puppies," he told the news channel.

The Kenyan trade unionist later reminisced about the days of President Kibaki's government, "This is indirect slavery, I want to appeal to our government to go the way President Kibaki’s government under Phylis Kandie did. She banned all employment agencies in Kenya. Let this issue be a government-to-government. Let Kenya negotiate with Saudi Arabia on terms and conditions of service… so that our people can do decent jobs and not a job of breastfeeding dogs." He finds the disturbing video to be "denying Kenyans dignity and respect."

"It denies us our own citizenship as Kenyans who are from a free and independent country. I want to appeal to the government to ban all employment agencies and review issues related to outside employment as advocated for by the International Labour Organization," he continued in his statement. Now, while the video in the possession of Atwoli has been circulating all over the internet, its authenticity is yet to be verified independently by Citizen Digital.
