Racist Chinese restaurant apologizes

24 March 2015, 17:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A Chinese restaurant that has adopted a policy of not admitting blacks has apologized for its actions. 

The restaurant has attracted debate over its apparent blackout of blacks and is in the news for not having a valid operating license.

And in a statement Tuesday, the restaurant said that it regretted its action which had been caused by several robbery incidences.

" We regret the decision which had been caused by robberies that have taken place at our establishment on several occasions.

" We insist that we welcome and accept people of all walks of life to visit us, the restaurant added.

The owner of the restaurant Zhao Yang was arrested Monday and released on bail for operating the restaurant without a valid license.

He will appear in court on 26 March to answer to the charges.

He was released on a bail of KES 50,000.

The apparent racist policy has caused huge outcry in the country, with Kenyans calling for its closure and immediate deportation of the owners on social media.

The hash-tag #ShutdowntheChinese has gained in prominence on Twitter and several Facebook campaigns have also been started in protest.

Kenya has a large number of Chinese businesses and expatriates and has in recent times had a strong relationship with the country especially in regards to building infrastructure.
