Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) is ready to have Ms. Diana Chepkemoi back as a student and even went ahead to offer her a job opportunity.
This is after Ms. Chepkemoi whose images went viral on all social media platforms showing how she was being mistreated by her employers in Saudi Arabia where she had secured a job in June 2021.
Through a statement issued by the Meru Univesity, Vice Chancellor Prof. Romanus Odhiambo regretted what the student went through saying that indeed she had deferred her studies over financial constraints in 2018.
“The University is willing to reinstate her, and give her a job under the work-study program to enable her complete her studies while fending for herself,” Prof Odhiambo said.
He went ahead to say that Ms. Chepkemoi first joined the school on August 31, 2017, to study Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Management under the school of Agriculture and Food Science.
The letter reads that she studied for the first semester of the academic year and submitted a letter of deferral due to financial problems on August 28, 2018.
“We welcome back Ms. Diana Chepkemoi, a member of the MUST family, to the university to complete her studies. We have informed her family of the support we shall offer her to complete her studies” he continued.
Professor Odhiambo went ahead to say that the student will be given a job opportunity within the university library and will be given free accommodation within the university.
He also admits that the school never tried to reach out to the student and the school management never knew of her whereabouts until her case was made public by the a twitter user.
