The representative, claimed that he had searched the morgues, hospitals and police stations but his efforts were futile.

Angwenyi pointed out that he had presented a sworn affidavit to Mlimani Law Courts which listed the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the Attorney- General, Inspector-General of Police and the Director of Immigration as respondents.

Struggles faced by Chinese nationals in Kenya

Chinese nationals have recently faced a lot of struggle in the country, with some even being deported after claims of being a security threat to the nation or racism.

In October 2018, five Chinese nationals had been arrested with dangerous items that were alleged to be a threat to the country’s security.

The items recovered during the raid included: Radio Calls, Military uniforms, laptops and metal detectors among others.

In a different incident, 15 Chinese girls were apprehended by the police at a brothel in Nairobi’s South C estate for engaging in prostitution following a tip off from a concerned member of the public.
