A disturbing video clip of a Chinese national beating a Kenyan national has surfaced sparking outrage among Kenyans. The unidentified Chinese man is said to be a senior official at Chez Wou Restaurant in Nairobi's Kileleshwa estate.
In the short clip shared by K24, the Chinese national is seen asking the Kenyan national identified as Simon Oseko to go down on his stomach as he holds a cane in his hand.
It is alleged that Oseko, who is a waiter at the restaurant had reported late to work resulting in the punishment. In the video, he is seen receiving not one but two canes from the Chinese manager as his colleagues watched from a distance.
The boss is heard asking him to choose which part of the body he preferred whipped. The youthful waiter is then heard pleading with the boss to administer the canes fast enough so that he can be done with it sooner.
The boss then goes ahead to hit the helpless waiter on his ribs and he (the waiter) is seen wreathing in pain.
The Chinese man is the head chef at the restaurant. The victim is reported to have endured the brutality and humiliation for over six months and that he was sacked prematurely after the latest incident. Oseko reported the incident at Kileleshwa Police Station obtaining a P3 form as authorities are said to have taken up the matter to investigate.
The chef is further said to have instilled fear in the junior workers to an extent that they cannot openly talk about their ordeals lest they lose their jobs.
Reached for his side of the story, the chef while begging for the story to be dropped, claimed that Oseko asked for the canes and that each stroke earned him KSh 100
