The government has now suspended the registration of new religious organisations indefinitely as it moves to streamline the regulation of such entities.
The suspension takes effect on Tuesday, November 11.
In a statement, Attorney-General Prof Githu Muigai also directed existing religious organisations to file details of their current status and financial returns with the Registrar of Societies.
That information, the AG noted, must include the full name of the organisation, a registration number, the date of registration and the full particulars of office bearers, copies of identification cards, passport-size photos and a copy of the Kenya Revenue Authority’s personal identification number (PIN).
“The State Law Office has also invited various religious organisations, (the) parliamentary Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs and the Commission on the Implementation of the Constitution for a meeting to be held on Friday, November 14, to discuss proposed regulations on religious organisations operating in Kenya,” said the AG.
