Four Chinese nationals were on Sunday arrested after one of them was captured on video caning a Kenyan at a Kileleshwa restaurant.
Deng Hailan was, in the now viral video, captured assaulting a Kenyan employee at Chez Wou restaurant for allegedly reporting to work late.
Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) based in Kilimani on Sunday raided the restaurant and discovered that Mr. Hailan, who works at the hotel as a chef, does not have a work permit.
Two other Chinese nationals, Chang Yueping and Ou Qiang, were arrested for reportedly holding expired Visas. They are also chefs at the hotel.
A fourth suspect, Yu Ling, a cashier, was arrested for holding a visitor’s Visa but without a work permit.
Eight Kenyans who work at the hotel were escorted to Kilimani Police Station to assist in investigations.
