Kenyan parliament rejects call to probe ministers over sugar imports


NAIROBI Kenyan lawmakers have rejected a report by two parliamentary committees that recommended the finance minister and a cabinet colleague be investigated over their handling of sugar imports, local newspapers reported on Friday.
The privately-owned Daily Nation and Standard newspapers said lawmakers had voted on Thursday to reject the joint report by parliament's agriculture and trade and industries committees, which was submitted to parliament last week.
It recommended that Finance Minister Henry Rotich and Adan Mohamed, who is now East African Community minister but was previously minister for Trade, Industry and Cooperatives, should be investigated over the sugar imports last year.
The Kenyan government has undertaken an unprecedented crackdown against what it calls illicit goods, to help boost the East African country's manufacturing sector. (REUTERS)
