Kenyan police have arrested four Chinese nationals after a video appeared online allegedly of one of the men caning a waiter at the hotel where they worked.
Detectives from Kilimani raided Chez Wou Restaurant in the suburb Kileleshwa on Sunday and arrested the four. Eight Kenyans who work at the hotel were also taken for interrogation.
Officials said the Chinese man caught on video caning the unnamed employee works at the hotel as a chef but does not have a work permit.
Police arrested two other hotel workers, Chang Yueping and Ou Qiang, who held expired visas, for questioning. “Chang holds a work permit, but his compatriot doesn’t,” the police said.
Yu Ling, a hotel cashier who held a visitor’s visa but no work permit, was also arrested. Eight Kenyan workers were taken to Kilimani Police Station as part of the investigation.
