About the event

Kenya – A Haven for Dirty Money?

Online debate on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 1400 GMT

Illicit finance flowing into Kenya has jumped five fold in a decade. Kenya is the easiest place in the world to open a shell company. Global financial regulators tag Kenya as a high risk place for money laundering and terrorist finance, and the World Bank is studying the problem for regional  anti-corruption agencies.  Yet the government is pushing ahead with plans to turn Nairobi into an international financial centre.  Is it building instead a major haven for laundering dirty money?   

Join an online chat to discuss the findings of the Thomson Reuters Foundation exclusive: Chic Nairobi throbs to the beat of dirty money 


John Githongo, anti-corruption expert in Kenya
