COORDINATING
COUNTER TERRORISM
IN KENYA

The National Counter Terrorism Centre is a multi-agency institution established by the Prevention of Terrorism Act to coordinate national counter-terrorism measures that prevent, detect, deter and disrupt terrorism acts.

Sec. 40C of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA) designates the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) as the approving and reporting Institution for all Civil Society Organisations, Community Based Organisations and International Non-Governmental Organisations engaged in Preventing, Countering Violent Extremisms (PCVE) and de-radicalisation programs; and therefore, obligates all entities engaged in PCVE and De-radicalisations efforts accordingly

We Are One

Kenya is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural constitutional democracy in a region in which violent extremism, particularly exploiting religious texts and identity, threatens national and human security. Kenya’s democratic and secular constitutional order is a direct target of Al Qaeda Jihadist terrorist groups and ideologues.

The NCTC is committed to deploying an innovative prevention capability under the countering of violent extremism framework.
