Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) has moved to court seeking to have its operating certificate cancellation suspended.

The organization says the NGO Board’s call to have their certificate cancelled was a gross violation to fair hearing. They want the decision overturned.

In the letter dated 14 August, the Fazul Mahamed board notified KHRC of the certificate cancellation.


Fazul’s move is according to the organization, damaging its image. They also noted that the deregistration was prejudicial and illegal.

“The petitioner’s image as an internationally renown human rights organisation is bound to suffer because the respondent has sensationally and maliciously associated it with tax evasion, money laundering, misappropriation and embezzlement of donor funds,” states a section of the suit papers.


KHRC was accused of operating four illegal bank accounts at NIC and CBA banks. They were also accused of not paying taxes amounting to 100 million.
