Chinese Who Canned Employee Detained By Court
A man of the Chinese nationality was arraigned in the Milimani law courts on Monday 10th February 2020 after a video of him with three other whipping a Kenyan employee went viral. The four would be detained in court after the court ruling on the charges of assault and causing bodily harm were read to them. They would be detained for 21 days a move they weren't comfortable with the court's decision terming their charges as not worth the length of detention.“The charges are not serious to warrant 21 days…The prosecution doesn’t need the 21 days to investigate. “The video shared on social media has generated public interest but we must not lose sight. There are always two sides of a story and the video doesn’t give us the context,” they argued. Their bail will be decided by the court on February 13th. The victim narrated that his employee had a cane to whip employees who arrived to work late adding that he had worked for the man for six months and endured the caning out of the fear of losing his only source of income.
"When he whipped me, I asked him why he had done that and he bluntly asked me 'do you want to continue working or not? Since you came late, I must beat you before you start working.' He gave me two strokes. It was so painful because I could not sit down," narrated the employee. The police have launched investigations into the case in conjunction with the government of China.
