The recent actions of Kenyan Authorities which saw them deport a Chinese businessman who was caught on camera referring to Kenyans (including the Kenyan president) as 'monkeys' among other racist remarks.
The video which was filmed while he was reportedly having a dispute with one of his employees, showed the Chinese National ratting racial utterances in reply to the employee who had said he should 'go back to China'.
The Chinese man, identified as Liu Jiaqi said in the two and a half minute video that “Every one, every Kenyan… like a monkey, even Uhuru Kenyatta. All of them”.
The Chinese man posted the video on social media, but unknown to him, it would find it's way to the Kenyan officials - who were not impressed by his remarks, and deported him back to China for his troubles.
The video which was widely shared on social media was considered offensive by many Kenyans and officials of the Kenyan government.
During the argument shown in the video, the businessman was seen shouting on top of his voices saying:
“I don’t belong to here. I don’t like here, like monkey people, I don’t like [to] talk with them, it smells bad, and poor, and foolish, and black. I don’t like them. Why not [like] the white people, like the American?”
He was arrested by Kenyan authorities on Thursday and deported.
Kenya’s immigration department said on Thursday that the Chinese man’s “work permit has been canceled and (he) will be deported on racism grounds”.
Africans from different parts of the continent have hailed the actions of the Kenyan authorities saying that it will serve as a deterrent to other foreigners like him who believe they can treat Africans anyhow they want in their own country!
The Kenyan immigration Service, a few hours after deporting the Chinese businessman posted a message on their official Twitter Account saying:
