NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed Labour Minister Ukur Yatani as acting finance minister after Henry Rotich was charged with corruption, the presidency said on Wednesday.

Julius Muia was appointed as principal secretary in the finance ministry, replacing Kamau Thugge, who was charged alongside Rotich, said the statement sent by the president’s spokeswoman.
