Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has ordered the deportation of four Chinese nationals taken to court over assaulting a Kenyan worker and lack of valid work permits.

The four include Deng Hailan who is suspected to have caned waiter Simon Osako Silo over alleged lateness before dismissing him.


Chang Yueping and Ou Qiang 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 four were arrested on February 9 after detectives from Kilimani raided Chez Wou Restaurant in Kileleshwa.

CS Matiang’i’s order came shortly after Milimani Principal Magistrate Hellen Okwani allowed police to detain the four for 15 days to allow police to investigate assault and immigration offences.

This follows a viral video that showed a man believed to be Hailan was seen caning a worker at the hotel raised furore online.

A supervisor at the hotel had told the media that Oseko had asked for the ‘punishment’ in order to be given money for Muguka.
The supervisor Dennis Omogah said that the incident was a prank that was blown out of proportion.
