According to a statement from DCI, all four immigrants do not hold the proper documentation for working in Kenya.

"The perpetrator, one Deng Hailan, a Chinese National who works at the hotel as a chef doesn’t have a work permit. Also arrested were two other chefs Chang Yueping & Ou Qiang who hold expired Visas. Chang holds a work permit but his compatriot doesn’t.

"Yu Ling, a cashier at the hotel holding a visitor’s visa but without a work permit was also arrested," DCI stated.
