Kenya’s lands minister should be charged with obstructing an investigation into fraudulent land transactions, the country’s chief prosecutor said Wednesday, three months after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered a crackdown on corruption.
Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko said he had found evidence the minister, Charity Kaluki Ngilu, had hindered the collection of evidence. He said she would not face charges related to the possibly fraudulent transactions themselves.
“I am satisfied that the recommended charge is sustainable,” Tobiko said in a statement.
