Nairobi - The government has shut down over 500 Non Governmental Organizations NGO's.
The move, by the NGO Coordination Board has been effected for various reasons, with 15 alleged to be taking part in radical activities.
The NGO's are accused of apparently funding terror activities in the country.
Another 510 have been de-registered for not being compliant with government procedures.
12 others have been told to file returns with the government within 21 days or risk closure, according to the board.
The 15 though will be the ones that have raised eyebrows, especially with the spate of terror activities in the country in recent times.
It is not yet known if there will be more action taken against the ones that have been found to be engaging in acts of radicalization.
The government is seeking legislation to ensure that terrorism and radicalization is nipped in the bud.
