Kenyan court halts deportation of Chinese nationals


A Kenyan court has suspended the deportation of four Chinese nationals, who were detained after video footage circulated purportedly showing one of them caning a worker.

Interior Minister Fred Matiang’i’ signed the deportation order last week after a court had allowed police to detain the four individuals for another 15 days. No court charges had been made.

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

It is alleged that one of them hit a Kenyan worker with a cane for tardiness. A video purporting to show the alleged incident went viral on social media.
