I don’t accept hotel assault was a prank – China’s ambassador to Kenya

China’s ambassador to Kenya Wu Peng on Friday, February 14, 2020, spoke publicly for the first time about the Kenyan employee assaulted at a Chinese hotel.

Speaking at a meeting convened by the Kenya Editors Guild (KEG) in Nairobi, the ambassador said that he did not accept the hotel’s management excuse that the act was a prank.

He explained that he asked one of his colleagues to call the hotel’s owner who gave explanations that the activity recorded on the video was part of a joke.
