Kenyan MP to spend second night in detention

Kenyan MP Charles Kanyi has appeared in court after being detained on Wednesday following comments he made that some have described as xenophobic.

In a widely-shared clip he appeared to threaten foreign business people with violence.

Mr Kanyi later said that his comments had been misinterpreted.

The magistrate has ordered that the MP should spend a second night in a police cell and the hearing will take place on Friday.
