Ethiopia to Export 45,000 Domestic Workers to Saudi Arabia Each Month

Woyane Continues its systematic wholesale enslavement of Ethiopian women, particularly those from the Amhara and Oromo ethnic groups.

No wonder if this is part of Woyane's 5 year growth and transformation plan. Daahhh!

By Saudi Gazette,

Ethiopia is facilitating procedures to send 45,000 maids to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia every month, an informed source at the Ethiopian Embassy in Saudi Arabia has said.

Ethiopian housemaids have been high in demand after the Kingdom stopped recruiting housemaids from four countries, including Kenya, because the Kingdom has been unable to reach a satisfactory agreement with these countries, Asharq Al-Awsat reported Wednesday.

Noor Adeen Masfa, Vice Consul for Economic Affairs in Jeddah, said his department and committees from the Ethiopian Ministry of Labor met several times to facilitate the travel of housemaids to the Kingdom after they are properly trained in Ethiopia.

We decided to finish procedures of 1,500 housemaids due to the increasing demand for Ethiopian housemaids by Saudi families. Ethiopian housemaids are trained well on Saudi customs and traditions, besides the percentage of runaways is low,” he said.

Unavailability of sufficient flights from Addis Ababa has also caused the delay in the travel of a large number of housemaids.

Some Saudi families have complained that their Ethiopian housemaids left their households after coming to the Kingdom to work illegally because they get lucrative offers from private companies and brokers. Masfa said this matter was studied and discussed. Deterring penalties will be put on housemaids who do that, he said.

Some Saudi families employ housemaids illegally and pay them SR2,000 a month. That’s why many housemaids run away,” he added.

  1. The problem is regional as all the countries in the Horn are exporters of labour to Saudi Arabia. If there were equally paying jobs in the exporting countries, people would not have made the tough decision to cross the Res sea and go to saudi Arabia. The flow could be reduced in the long run through sustianable economic development. However, for this to take place building peace, including between Eritrea and Ethiopia is paramount.

  2. To John,

    I don't know how the authors put it but for me it's more than news. Let me put it this way so that you will understand it better.

    Suppose that this program continued for the next 3 years. That means 45,000 maids a month is equal to around 6 million Ethiopian women to leave the country to enslave per year.

    Imagine 6 million miskin Ethiopians per year. In three years then around 18 million Ethiopians.

    To make the comparision even simpler, it is suffice to learn the population of Eritrea is around 6 million.

    That is what makes it new. How about that!
