The High Court has temporarily suspended the deportation of four Chinese nationals accused of allegedly assaulting a Kenyan worker.
The four were ordered to leave the country by interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i after they were caught on video allegedly assaulting the worker at Chez Wou Restaurant in Kileleshwa, Nairobi.
Following the petition by the four suspects to challenge their deportation, the court certified their application as urgent directing the director of public prosecutions to file a response in two days and appear in court on 25th February for inter party hearing.
Last week, Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i ordered their deportation following their arrest by DCI detectives prompted by a viral video showing a Kenyan employee being whipped for arriving late to work.
Hearing of the application will be heard on 25/2/2020 before Justice Kimaru.
And a businessman has been arraigned in court and charged for defrauding the National Cooperative Housing Union Limited of 21 million shillings.

Gathungwa is further facing two counts including making a false document and obtaining money by false pretense.
He denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of 5 million shillings.
