Gift-Giving Rules In Kenya

Here's the summary from the FCPA Blog members area of the gift-giving rules for public employees in Kenya:

*     *     *

Gift-giving legislation can be found in The Public Officer Ethics Act, Chapter 183, Revised Edition 2009 (2003).

The general rule is that public officers shall not accept or request gifts related to the execution of public functions. However, public officers may accept gifts given by relatives or friends on special occasions recognized by custom. A public officer may accept a gift given to him in his official capacity but such a gift shall be treated as a gift to the public officer's organization, unless the gift is a non-monetary gift that does not exceed the value prescribed by regulation.

Please see the Legislation [available in ethiXbase to view or download] for further details.
