Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i ordered the deportation of four Chinese nationals who were arrested after one of them was filmed caning a Kenyan employee at Chez Wou Restaurant in Kileleshwa, Nairobi.
The deportation order was signed just hours after a Nairobi court allowed police to detain the four for 15 days pending conclusion of investigations into the incident.
They include Deng Hailan, who was captured assaulting the employee, Chang Yueping and Ou Qiang, who were arrested for reportedly holding expired Visas.
A fourth suspect, Yu Ling, a cashier, was arrested for holding a visitor’s Visa but without a work permit.
The case was set to be mentioned on March 4.
The magistrate had directed the prosecution to produce a holding charge to enable the four Chinese apply for bail.
