The Kenyan High Court has waded into a corruption scandal surrounding the governor of the Central Bank of Kenya, Njuguna Ndung'u, blocking his arrest until a petition can be heard.
A spokeswoman for Kenya's public prosecutor confirmed on Tuesday that it had "recommended" Ndung'u's prosecution over allegations relating to the tender of security software for the central bank. The issue has been referred to the country's corruption watchdog, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.
