Illicit financial flows have permeated into a number of African countries and Kenya is no exception. The country is looking to battle with terrorism financing and prosecutions. Terrorism financing encompasses the methods used by terrorist organizations to finance their activities. According to the United Nations, this money can come from legitimate sources such as profits from businesses or illegal activities such as trafficking in weapons, drugs or people, or kidnapping for ransom. The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has recently launched guidelines on co-ordination, co-operation, and collaboration in the investigation and prosecution of Terrorism and Terrorism Financing.
