Police have arrested four Chinese nationals suspected to have assaulted a road engineer in Turkana.

The four, according to police documents, have been identified as Wang Kai, Li Shaoqing, Zhao Liangbin and Liu Jiang.

The suspects, who are employees of China Railway Engineering Company, reportedly attacked Mr Rodgers Imasa on Friday afternoon last week.

Lodwar Police boss David Mutengi said that the suspects will be charged for assault.

“They are currently detained at the station and we shall ensure that they are arraigned in court,” he said.

The police said that they were recording statements from the company employees to shed more light on the suspects’ activities in the county.
