Matiang'i orders 4 Chinese deported over caning Kenyan staff

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i has ordered the deportation of four Chinese nationals taken to court over assaulting a Kenyan worker.

The four are Deng Hailan, suspected to have caned waiter Simon Osako Silo before dismissing him, Chang Yueping, Ou Qiang and Yu Ling.

They were on February 9 after detectives from Kilimani raided Chez Wou Restaurant in Kileleshwa.

CS Matiang'i's order came shortly after a court allowed police to detain the four for 15 days to investigate assault and immigration offences.

State prosecutors Jacinta Nyamosi and Everlyn Onunga also noted in court on Thursday that the foreigners lacked work permits and that police were yet to interrogate the worker.

Ms Nyamosi said they entered the country last year on visitors' visas whose validity period had lapsed.
