On 5th of September 2018, a video clip of a Chinese nationalist who was recorded referring the president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta as a ‘monkey’ went viral on social media. The Chinese is reported to had been managing a business of selling motorbikes in Nairobi.
Dr. Miguna Miguna who was deported after 2017 elections in Kenya commented on the Chinese statement saying that the Chinese was generous because according to Dr. Miguna Miguna, President Uhuru Kenyatta is far worse than a ‘Monkey’. Miguna Miguna added that real monkeys are more civilized.
” The Chinese man who called Uhuru Kenyatta a monkey was generous. Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta is far worse than a monkey. Monkeys are very civilized. They show genuine love, affection and care for their children when Uhuru Kenyatta murders babies like Baby Pendo and children like Moraa Nyarangi.” Tweet from Dr. Miguna Miguna.
According to the Chinese man, all Kenyans are monkey, very dirty, poor and smelling bad. Now considering Dr. Miguna Muguna’s tweet, at one point he claimed that he is a true Kenyan and he seems to be siding the the Chinese man. And the question is, Is Muguna Miguna accepting that he is a monkey?
However, following the comments from the Miguna Miguna’s tweet, some Kenyans have supported him more so when Miguna mention the names of PENDO and MORAA. The two children lost their lives during the 2017 election protest in Kenya.
Since Dr. Miguna Muguna was deported back to Canada after leading the swearing in Of Raila Odinga as the People’s President, He has never stopped talking about it on his social media accounts, Twitter and Facebook. Miguna Miguna become more mad on Kenyan leaders after Raila Amolo Odinga decided to meet president Uhuru Kenyatta for handshake that would later led to unity in Kenya between NASA supporters and that of Jubilee.
Report from the Immigration department is the racist Chinese man was arrested and his work permit will be cancelled then later he will be deported back to China.
“Chinese National by the Name Liu Jiaqi who was captured on video yesterday using abusive words has been arrested. His work permit has been canceled and will be deported on racism grounds.” Tweet From Immigration Kenya.
Many leaders from Kenya have condemned the behavior of the Chinese man but Live News was attracted to a comment from Senator Kipchumba Murkomen. According to The Senator, many Kenyans call each other names worse than that from the Chinese man. He said that Kenyans call others bad names more so when they differ in an opinion or because they are from different tribes.
“I know we are mad with Liu Jiaqi for calling us monkeys. But let’s be honest. How many of us call people worse names because they come from different tribes?How many of us hurl obscenities to others because they hold different opinions? We have many and worse Liu Jiaqis among us.” Tweet from Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
Considering Kipchumba Murkomen Tweet or opinion, it is true that Kenyans call each other bad names when they differ in an opinion. But that does not allow outsiders to use abusing language like that of the Chinese man because that will be seen as racism.
It was earlier reported that Many cases where foreigners doing businesses in Kenya have been abusing Kenyan had been reported to the ministry of Labour and even COTU but no action was taken at all.
While talking to NTV, a lady who works at Sonlink, the same company that was managed by the Chinese Man admitted that they are facing alot of challenges since the Chinese are mistreating them.
