The Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) and the Kenyan Section of International Commission of Jurists (ICJ Kenya) has asked the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights to urge the Kenyan Government to, “Cease arbitrary deregistration, barriers to registration and operation of non-governmental organizations and all organized civic groups in a free and democratic society”.

The organizations said it was important for the Kenyan government to appreciate the interrelatedness of civil and political rights and economic, social and cultural rights.

They made the statement endorsed by the Independent Medico Legal Unit and the Refugee Consortium of Kenya in the ongoing   57th Ordinary session of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights in Gambia.
