Kenya to deport 4 Chinese over viral video of local worker caning

Kenya’s Interior Minister has ordered the deportation of four Chinese nationals who were taken to court after video footage circulated showing one of them caning a worker.

Fred Matiang’i signed the deportation order just hours after the court had allowed police to detain the four individuals for 15 more days. No court charges have yet been made.

Deng Hailan, Ou Giang, Yu Ling & Chang Yueping are accused of: assaulting a Kenyan waiter at a Chinese restaurant for reporting to work late, operating a business without work permit & being in the country illegally.

The four were arrested on 9 February after detectives raided Chez Wou Restaurant in the capital Nairobi’s Kileleshwa suburb.

After questioning it was discovered that only one of them had a work permit.

During court session on Thursday, the prosecution made a request for more time to investigate the case, the request was granted.

This is not the first time that the interior minister has ordered of the deportation of Chinese nationals.

Last year, a Chinese man was deported for abusing President Uhuru Kenyatta in a video filmed by an employee at his motorcycle shop.
