Police in Kilimani, Nairobi, are pursuing a Chinese businessman for assaulting and seriously injuring his compatriot.

Zhu Jin Ping is said to have committed the offence on March 20, 2022, at around 8pm after luring Li Xia to a city joint.

The two have a pending case in court where they are accused of obtaining money by false pretences.
