Kenyan president lifts suspensions of two ministers

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki has revoked the prime minister’s suspension of two government ministers linked to corruption allegations.

President Kibaki said the prime minister could not suspend ministers

The ministers of agriculture and education were suspended by Prime Minister Raila Odinga during fraud investigations into missing funds.

But hours later the suspensions were lifted as Mr Kibaki said Mr Odinga did not have the authority to suspend.

The two suspended ministers have denied any personal wrongdoing.

There had been growing calls for ministers to resign after millions of dollars of public money were siphoned off in an education and a maize scandal.
