Nairobi - The NGO Board has canceled operating licences for three NGO's for links to terrorist activities.
The three NGO's named b the NGO board Wednesday are MUHURI, Haki Africa & Agency for Peace and Development.
The three have been accused by government agencies of dealing with persons who are linked to radicalization and specifcally the Al Shabaab terror group.
MUHURI stands for Muslims for Human Rights.
Haki Africa has been in the news in recent times following an accusation by the Kenyan government that it was involved in terrorist activities.
The main point of contention though was the fact that the Norwegian High Commision in Nairobi was still sponsoring the NGO despite the government stating it was a terrorist cell.
The three had last month been named in a list of organizations and persons accused of dealing with terrorism and terrorist activities.
They were named in the aftermath of the Garissa University College terror attack in which 148 people were killed by militants from the Shabaab.
