Fifteen NGOs have been deregistered, their
bank accounts frozen, assets repossessed and their names forwarded to
the CID, Anti-Terror Police Unit and Interpol for investigation on
suspicion of funding terror activities in Kenya and the Horn of Africa.
Making the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, NGOs Coordination Board
chairman Fazul Mahamed Yusuf said precautions have been taken to curb
the trend.“Noting that NGOs are vulnerable to abuse as conduits of
terrorism financing and money laundering, the Board has put measures in
place to curb such occurrences. In view of this, the board warns NGOs
that could be used for criminal activities that decisive legal action
will be taken against them,” Yusuf said.
Yusuf announced the
deregistration of 510 more NGOs for non-compliance in accordance with
regulation 24 of the NGOs Coordination Regulation Act of 1992.
The Act requires NGOs to submit annual reports and audited accounts to the board or face prosecution.
The 510 NGOs have 21 days to comply to the requirement and reapply for
registration justifying the renewal of their operation licenses.
Among them are 12 with incomes higher than Sh500 million that have
failed to file their audit reports that will also be required to apply
for licenses again.
They are: Adventist Development and Relief
Agency International, Artsen Zonder Grenzen - Holland, Center for Health
Solutions - Kenya, Concern Worldwide, FH Association, LVCT Health,
Medecins Sans Frontieres - Switzerland, Medecins Sans Frontieres -
Belgium, Medecins Sans Frontieres - France, Technoserve Kenya,
Veterinaires Sans Frontieres Belgium and Water For Life.
additionally put donors to NGOs on notice and said they too could face
prosecution for not holding their NGOs to account on use of funds.
“We shall hold donors accountable just as we do for NGOs if the funds they donate ae used for criminal purposes,” Yusuf added.
The deregistrations come in the wake of heightened security and
government efforts geared towards clamping down on terrorism and
The National Assembly will in February next year resume
debate on a controversial Security Law (Amendment) Bill which is
intended to enhance the ability of security organs to secure the county.
The bill has however come under sharp criticism by a section of NGOs,
civil society groups, the council of governors and opposition leaders
allied to Cord terming the bill as suppressive and draconian.
