She wanted to live on the fast lane and chose to achieve it in a foreign country. But six months later, Rose Adhiambo called from the Lebanese capital Beirut, requesting special prayers. "Tomorrow is the D-Day, please pray for me," she told her aunt, Margaret Olwande two weeks ago. These were to be Adhiambo’s last words as she planned an escape from her employer. The 24 year-old woman from Nyanza, has now gone missing and is presumed dead. She is said to have fallen to her death from the sixth floor of a building in a bungled bid to escape from a house where she worked as house help.

They want the government to investigate what may have happened to Adhiambo in Beirut.Photos: Omondi Onyango/Standard A Lebanese newspaper, Al-Akhbar, reported on September 1 that a Kenyan immigrant worker was found dead on a first floor balcony of a building after falling from the sixth floor in Beirut’s Sahel Alma area. "She was trying to go down hanging on a nylon rope from her employer’s house, according to Police reports," the newspaper reported. Now Adhiambo’s relatives in Kenya believe their daughter could either be dead or was in grave danger. Her employer has confirmed her death through an agent but has declined to speak to her relatives. The woman worked as house help and had been complaining about slavery-like working conditions. She got the job through an agent based in Mombasa last December and relatives now regret why they allowed her to travel to Lebanon. Olwande says her niece was an ambitious girl determined to have a better future. Adhiambo got her early education in Kisumu before travelling to Mombasa where she joined her relatives.Click to read ful story:- http://www.standardmedia.co.ke/InsidePage.php?id=2000018244&cid=4&ttl=Tragic%20end%20to%20a%20woman's%20big%20dreams
