High Court suspends Matiangi's order to deport Chinese nationals caught on camera canning employee

Chinese nationals accused of canning Kenyan worker will not be deported

Chinese nationals will not be deported

The High Court has overturned a directive by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i that would have seen the deportation of 4 Chinese nationals.

In the ruling, the court suspended the deportation orders of the 4 which was issued after public outcry when a video was shared online of a Chinese man canning a Kenyan worker.

Deng Hailan was arrested after investigators identified him as the man caught on camera assaulted the employee.

The others Chang Yueping and Ou Qiang were arrested for allegedly having expired visas.

Orders signed by Matiang'i

A woman identified as Yu Ling, a cashier, was arrested for working on a visitor’s visa instead of a work permit.

The case was set to be mentioned on March 4 but CS Matiang’i signed the deportation orders just hours after the court allowed police to detain the four.

The court had ruled that the suspects could not be released since they may interfere with investigations and granted investigators 15 days to probe the matter.

State prosecutors Jacinta Nyamosi and Everlyn Onunga had told the court that police were yet to interrogate the worker, Simon Osako Silo.
