Liu Jiaqi was deported from Kenya after he was caught on camera calling Kenyans monkeys including president Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Chinese man arrogantly stated that he doesn’t like Kenya because the people are black, poor and they smell. He however said that he still had to do business with Kenyans because he wanted their money.

Richard Ochieng, who recorded the Chinese man hurl racist slur, has come out to narrate his experience working for the racist man during an interview with New York Times.

The 26 year old reveals that Liu Jiaqi racially abused him on a regular basis. He recalls an incident when he was on a business trip with Liu and they spotted troop of baboons by the roadside. Liu told Ochieng to say hi to his brothers (baboons) and instructed him to share some bananas with the primates.

Ochieng also reveals that when he took the job as a salesman at the Chinese motorbike company he was paid a fraction of what he was initially offered.

He also says that his salary was subject to deduction for a long list of infractions, including zero laughter policy at work.

Each minute of lateness — sometimes unavoidable given Nairobi’s notorious traffic — came with a steep fine. An employee who was 15 minutes late might be docked five or six hours’ pay,” said Ochieng.

Barely five years after immigrating to the United Sates, Kenyan Diaspora media personality Jeremy Damaris has done what many of his peers can only dream of.

His media house, Kenya Diaspora Media – USA (formally Kikuyu Diaspora Media) has established a spectacular state-of-the-art studio after recently paying $160K in cash for a building in Birmingham, Alabama.

Since the news broke, well-wishers have been congratulating the entrepreneur who, besides being a radio and tv host, also doubles up as a musician and a professional Master of Ceremonies (MC).

However, the humble man from a village in Kiambu attributes the major achievement to God’s grace.

“I thank everyone who has contributed in one way or another to this immense success. God indeed can move mountains,” says Jeremy, adding that without the goodwill of his fans and well-wishers, this would only have been a pipedream.

Together with his wife Sally, Jeremy immigrated to the USA in 2015 where he established the then Kikuyu Diaspora Radio from scratch.

The station grew exponentially, becoming Kikuyu Diaspora media  and later  re-branding to Kenya Diaspora Media -USA.

“We are now broadcasting in different languages and reaching all manner of Kenyan demographics around the world,” he recently told Kenya Satellite News Network.

Learn more about Jeremy Damaris by watching the following video which is in Gīkūyū language:

Besides disseminating news and events of the day, Damaris, through KDM, has been known to reach out to persons or families in dire straits and bringing their plight’s attention to his audience.

His Youtube channel has been growing fast. Las year, he was awarded the coveted graphite Youtube Creators plaque after his channel reached 100,000 subscribers. His studio, as you can see in the photo below, is equipped to handle all manner of audiovisual content, ready for instant broadcast through various platforms.

“KENYA DIASPORA MEDIA USA has bought its building in cash. Its now Official!!, ” posted Jeremy.

“Glory to God for our new office in United States. FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS! Thanks to everyone who participated to make this happen.#NoDebt!! #KDMFAMILYTEAM!!! #Mahigahomes #NeemaShelters #Amgrealtors #EdenparkcountryGardens #OptivenLtd #AttorneyWanjohi #GiokoTaxes #Maridadymotors and all #WELLWISHERS,” he added.

“The word compassion may have been created just to describe this true son of Africa as he has many times gone out of his way expressing the same while benevolently responding positively to praiseworthy cases many don’t pay attention to and watch without doing anything to help mankind,” says Dr Isaac Kinungi of Kenyan Parents in the USA organisation.

Others have described him as a philanthropist on a journey of inspiring and a fulfilling the dreams that brought him to America, while connecting the dots and networking with those that share common values and unity of purpose, to bring about change to humanity and society at large.

 

Kenya Satellite News Media joins in congratulating the hard-working Jeremy Damaris and his company, KDM (USA), for this achievement.
