Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma
Kenyans in the diaspora have been urged to register their associations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade.
In a statement, the Ministry said it will only engage with diaspora associations that have registered with them.
"We wish to inform all Diaspora Officials that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade of the Republic of Kenya will ONLY engage with properly registered and recognized Diaspora Associations," the Ministry said in a statement.
Those who wish to register their associations have been advised to visit Kenyan Missions in the country they are currently residing in.
To register, the Ministry said, copies of the association's Constitution; names of duly elected officials; and contact details including telephone number, postal address, email address and website, should be submitted.
"In this regard, we are advising all Diaspora Associations to register with both local and legal authorities of their countries of domicile and respective Kenya Missions," the Ministry said.
