Kenyan Police summon Finance Minister


Police in Kenya have summoned Finance Minister, Henry Rotich for questioning over a multi-million Dollar scandal involving payments for dam projects.

Mr Rotich is currently at the headquarters of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in the capital, Nairobi.

“He must answer several questions,” DCI head George Kinoti said.

The DCI is investigating advance payments made to various firms for the construction of two dams, valued at more than $600m (£455m).

In an earlier statement, Mr Rotich denied there had been any wrongdoing, saying payments had been made in strict accordance with the law.
