Nairobi governor arrested over corruption scandal

Nairobi's controversial governor Mike Sonko has been arrested on suspicion of involvement in a multi-million dollar corruption scandal.

The director of public prosecutions said the investigation had been challenging because of repeated attempts by the accused to obstruct it.

Mr Sonko is known for his love of gold jewellery and clothing.

He has previously described the allegation as a witch-hunt carried out for political reasons.
