Launch of the Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing

National Risk Assessment Report


The Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, Dr. Fred Matiang’i, EGH, today launched Kenya’s first Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing National Risk Assessment Report (NRA Report). The National Risk Assessment on Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing (ML/TF) exercise (NRA) was conducted over the period 2020 -2021 using the World Bank’s NRA tool and methodology. The main objective of undertaking the NRA was to identify and assess the vulnerabilities, levels and trends of money laundering, terrorism financing and proliferation financing in the country, and to propose measures for mitigating the identified risks.
The outputs of the NRA exercise include the NRA Report which details the ML/TF risk profiles and a corresponding National AML/CFT/CPF Strategy and Action Plan to address and implement the outcome of the NRA exercise.
The Cabinet Secretary thanked all the stakeholders who participated in this important national exercise and commended the strong public-private sector partnership in undertaking this exercise.

The NRA Report can be accessed from the link below. In addition, an abridged version of the NRA Report has been prepared to highlight the key findings and proposed action plan and is also available on the link below.

    Kenya underwent an Anti-Money Laundering, Counter Terrorist Financing and Counter Proliferation Financing (AML/CFT/CPF) assessment by the Eastern and Southern Africa Anti-Money Laundering Group (ESAAMLG) aimed at assessing Kenya’s compliance with global AML/CFT/CPF standards.

    Kenya’s Mutual Evaluation Report (MER) was adopted by the ESAAMLG Council of Ministers in September 2022 at its meeting in Livingstone, Zambia and subsequently published on the ESAAMLG website on November 11, 2022. The MER summarises the AML/CFT/CPF regime in the country also provides recommendations on how the country’s AML/CFT/CPF regime can be strengthened. A copy of the MER can be downloaded here.
