Kenya hotel saga: FM off the hook

Nairobi - An official inquiry into the controversial sale of a luxury Kenyan hotel has cleared the country's former Finance Minister Amos Kimunya of any wrongdoing, the leading Daily Nation newspaper said on Tuesday.

The commission's report was handed to President Mwai Kibaki on Monday, but its findings were not made public. A government spokesperson declined to comment on Tuesday. Kimunya, a close Kibaki ally, stepped aside on July 8 to allow the investigation.
