Kenya finance minister denies corruption allegations

Henry Rotich

In court, Kenya’s Finance Minister Henry Rotich has denied the corruption allegations being made against him.

The charges, relating to the awarding of a contract to build two dams, are being read out. Mr Rotich is being asked if they are “true or not true”.

“Not true,” he has responded so far.

Mr Rotich is appearing alongside several other officials in court in the capital, Nairobi.

He was arrested on Monday after the director of public prosecutions made the allegations.
