A Chinese man will be deported after a video emerged of him making racist comments, Kenya’s immigration department says.
The man, identified as Liu Jiaqi, was captured in a video calling all Kenyans, including President Uhuru Kenyatta, “monkeys”.
Mr Liu and his representatives have yet to comment on the situation. The authorities have revoked his work permit and say he will be deported on “racism grounds”.
An employee filmed Mr Liu, who is a motorcycle trader, saying that he disliked Kenya because it “smells bad and poor, foolish and black”.
When the employee asked why he wanted to stay in the country, the trader said he was only there to make money.
Police arrested him hours after the video was circulated.
