Kenya finance minister Henry Rotich faces arrest for corruption

Kenya's chief prosecutor has ordered the arrest of the finance minister over allegations of corruption related to the construction of two dams.

Henry Rotich is accused of flouting procurement procedures in awarding a contract worth over $450m (£405m) for the dam projects to the Italian company CMC de Ravenna.

In March Rotich denied any wrongdoing in a large newspaper advert.

The company has also denied the accusations.
