Kenya – A Haven for Dirty Money?

Kenya: a haven for dirty money?

Online debate on Wednesday, December 16, 2013, 1400 GMT

Illicit finance flowing into Kenya has jumped fivefold 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?
