Kenyan MP Charles Kanyi

Kenyan MP Charles Kanyi has appeared in court after being detained on Wednesday following comments he made that some have described as xenophobic.

In a widely-shared clip he appeared to threaten foreign business people with violence.

Mr Kanyi later said that ”his comments had been misinterpreted.”

The magistrate has ordered that the MP should spend a second night in a police cell and the hearing will take place on Friday.
