Chinese Ambassador to Kenya Wu Peng denied Kenyans being mistreated in China and revealed that the only people who were mistreated in China was as a result of them not maintaining social distance as announced by the Chinese government.

Mr Wu Peng was reacting to confusion from Kenyans who were angered after their nationals were racially abused in China.

Kenyans and other Africans were forced to sleep on the streets after they were evicted from their houses in China, blamed for having COVID-19.

"People who found themselves in trouble did not follow regulations on social distancing. Most reported are not Kenyans." Mr Wu said.

According to reports, Chinese police evicted Africans including Kenyans, forcibly and taking away their legal documents as well as telling their nationals to be careful with Africans.

Posters have been put up in malls and restaurants asking Africans to stay away and in some videos, they were also banned from accessing hospitals.

In the tweet thread, Wu Peng went on to note that he is in constant touch with authorities in China on the safety of Kenyans and reiterated solid relations between the two nations, also asserting that China has zero-tolerance for discrimination of foreigners.
