The High Court delivered judgment in a petition by the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) challenging the decision of the Non-GovernmentaOrganizations Coordination Board (NGO Board) which threatened to cancel the registration certificate and freeze the accounts for the organization.

Justice Louis Onguto found that the failure by the NGO board to give the KHRC a hearing before arriving at a decision to cancel its registration was a violation of the constitutional right Justice Onguto further stated that this was compounded by the fact that the NGO board failed to furnish written reasons to the Kenya Human Rights Commission when the organization repeatedly wrote asking for such reasons.
