Recently, Bizuayehu was sent to buy a few items from a nearby shop and was kidnapped by her own father. Then, he gave her to an employer so that he’d take her monthly salary. Bizuayehu stayed with her employers for a few days and tried to runaway and find her way back home. her employer found her and when she asked to go back to her mother, she took her to the police.
