Kenyan government has deported four Chinese citizens after one of them whipped a Kenyan waiter for coming late to work at Chez Wou Restaurant in Kileleshwa, Nairobi.
Kenya’s Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiang’i has ordered the deportation of four Chinese nationals taken to court over assaulting a Kenyan worker.
The four are Deng Hailan, Chang Yueping, Ou Qiang and Yu Ling.Mr Deng is suspected to have caned waiter Simon Osako Silo over lateness before dismissing him.
They were arrested on February 9 after detectives from Kilimani raided Chez Wou Restaurant in Nairobi suburb Kileleshwa
The Chinese citizens were arrested after a video of one of the supervisors canning a worker for allegedly reporting to work late went viral.
The victim told police that it was not an isolated incident, saying that other staffers had faced a similar ordeal.
He said the Kenyan workers were afraid to speak out for fear of losing their jobs.
Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Wu Peng has condemned the action of the suspect filmed caning the Kenya worker, saying all their nationals must abide by Kenyan laws
