Murkomen under fire after Tweet on deported Chinese businessman
The Immigration Department at 4pm confirmed that Jiaqi had been deported.
Jiaqi was captured on video hurling insults at Kenyans and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
There was public uproar with many demanding his immediate deportation, when the video showing him calling Kenyans monkeys went viral.
The Chinese Embassy swiftly responded distancing itself from Jiaqi's offensive remarks noting that the utterances made by their national did not represent that of China's vast majority adding that he had already been punished by his employer.
Murkomen on Thursday afternoon took to Twitter saying that as much as citizens are angered at Jiaqi, most of Kenyans call each other worse names.
"I know we are mad with Liu Jiaqi for calling us monkeys. But let’s be honest. How many of us call people worse names because they come from different tribes?How many of us hurl obscenities to others coz they hold different opinions?We’ve many&worse Liu Jiaqis among us," Murkomen tweeted.
The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator's sentiments did not go down well with Kenyans who attacked him for what was seen as being defensive of the Chinese national.
