Kenya’s Finance Minister Henry Rotich has been sacked – a day after he was arraigned in court on charges of corruption.

Labour Minister Ukur Yattani has been seconded to the role in an acting capacity.

Mr Rotich pleaded not guilty to charges of flouting procurement procedures in awarding a contract worth more than $450m (£405m) for the construction of two dams to an Italian firm, CMC de Ravenna.

The company also denies any wrongdoing.
