Kenyan PM suspends two ministers over corruption

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.

"I am taking this action because two recent investigations ... have laid credible foundations for the two ministers to be investigated," the prime minister said.
