Kenya suspends senior government officials over corruption

Next writes on February 15, 2010
Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga suspended two ministers from his coalition government on Sunday for three months to allow further investigation into corruption scandals in the maize and education sectors.

In a statement, Odinga said Agriculture Minister William Ruto and Education Miniarwe Sam Ongeri should step aside to allow "fair, independent and comprehensive" inquiries.

Also, the president, Mwai Kibaki has suspended eight senior officials over corruption allegations in a move that will please donors but only underlines divisions at the top of the country's fragile coalition.
