The taken girl, Jackline says that the woman who snatched her intended for her to be a surrogate mother but managed to escape after a neighbour helped her escape. 

But her turmoil did not end there after the Chief in Kuria District that she escaped to intended to force her to undergo circumcision procedure for marriage.

However in the end she managed to get back to Kenya even though she had no hopes of returning herself.

Jackline says there are other girls living in the area suffering the same fate and has called on government to intervene and bring back the girls.  

According to a report by the U.S. State Department in Persons Report in 2009, "Kenya is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and sexual exploitation. Kenyan children are trafficked within the country for domestic servitude, forced labor in agriculture (including on flower plantations), cattle herding, in bars, and for commercial sexual exploitation, including involvement in the coastal sex tourism industry.
