The Kenya Human Rights Commission denounces attempt of illegal de-registration by the NGO coordination board

The Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) takes great exception to a document circulating amongst the local media and various social media platforms supposedly from the Executive Director of the NGO Co-ordination Board, Mr. Fazul Mohammed who purportedly proceeds to deregister KHRC. This is sadly yet another chapter in attempts to harass and intimidate KHRC at the hands of the NGO Co-ordination Board and more specifically Mr. Fazul Mohammed himself. The particulars cited in this letter are baseless allegations that have been directed at KHRC since 2015 and we have consistently addressed and disposed of them each time.

It was alleged then as it is now, that KHRC has operated illegal accounts, failed to abide by its statutory tax obligations, concealed transactions in relation to its board members and made false declarations to the NGO Coordination Board. In what is a recurring trend, KHRC has been condemned unheard by the NGO Coordination Board in clear violation of the Constitution as well as statutory and procedural provisions on this matter. KHRC in fact sought legal redress on these matters specifically in 2015 and obtained a clear judgement against them in Kenya Human Rights Commission v Non-Governmental Organisations Co-Ordination Board [2016] eKLR.
