Anti-corruption officers in Kenya have raided the homes of the governor of central Kiambu county, Ferdinand Waititu.

Mr Waititu has been at the centre of a political storm in recent weeks, following allegations of irregular spending - including the theft of public money - in his administration. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Two of his homes in the capital, Nairobi, were raided by detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), local media reports say.

The EACC and Mr Waititu have not yet commented.
