Kenya Moves Against NGOs

Kenya's government moved to shut down two rights organisations who said Tuesday they had been contemplating court action over last week's disputed presidential election.

On Tuesday morning, the interior ministry's NGO Board asked police to shut down the Africa Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG) and arrest its members.

Already late on Monday, the NGO Board said it was withdrawing the registration of the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) over alleged irregularities.

KHRC board member Maina Kiai said on Tuesday it was "no secret" they had been considering lodging a complaint at the Supreme Court over "inconsistencies" in the election process.
