By NAIRA HABIB August 15th, 2017 1 min read

Kenyans on Twitter were an uncontrollable lot on Tuesday as they expressed mixed reactions to the deregistration of non-governmental organisations critical of the Jubilee regime.

On Monday, NGOs Coordination Board boss Fazul Mahamed sent out a notice on the de-registration of the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) for failing to account for sh1.2 billion, operating illegal bank accounts and failing to pay tax.

A day later, Mr Mahamed ordered for the investigation of African Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG) in a letter to the Director of CID Mr Ndegwa Muhoro following claims that the body has not been registered under the NGOs Coordination Act.

KOT had this to say on the matter.
