BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,19THSEPT 2018-Immigration officers on Wednesday arrested 15 Chinese in a brothel in South C estate said to be engaging in prostitution.
The news was broken through social media with the department confirming the arrests. “The 15 Chinese were arrested by Immigration officers this morning, ” the department tweeted adding that they were being processed for deportation.
The move has elicited heated reactions across the social media platforms with Kenyans asking why they had made their way into the country in the first place.
Martin Ndiragu questioned why the authorities were obsessed with deporting criminals instead of first locking them at Kamiti Maximum Prison.
“These guys live in one apartment, ten Chinese individuals. All they do is gamble at the various casinos around Hurlingham and Yaya,” Twitter user Roy Churchill said.
It will be remembered that On September 6, a Chinese businessman Liu Jiagi was deported after calling President Uhuru Kenyatta and Kenyans monkeys.
However, Chinese Embassy spokesman Zhang Gang said the remarks did not represent the views of a majority of the Chinese people living in Kenya.
Liu was arrested barely a day after authorities raided China Global Television Network Africa (CGTN) headquarters in Nairobi in a crackdown immigrants without work permits.
This development comes months after interior CS Fred Matiangi declared war on illegal immigrants living or working in the country without proper documentations.
