1. Presidential decree

The Anti-Counterfeit Agency and the manufacturing sector welcomes the executive order from President Uhuru Kenyatta during this year’s Jamhuri Day address to the nation. He made it clear that the growth of the manufacturing sector is the first pillar among the ‘Big Four’ of creating employment.
The executive order to investigate infringements on intellectual property rights and destroy counterfeits on sight is a pro-growth order since counterfeits are a major impediment to the growth of the manufacturing sector.

Plant for bottling counterfeit alcohol raided as Anti-Counterfeit inspectors seized over 50,000 litres of fake spirits with a street value KSH 40 Million.

Inspectors from the Anti-Counterfeit Agency raided a home at the outskirts of Laare town in Meru County and arrested six people in an undercover operation. Around 50,000 LITRES worth KSH 40 Million of five different trademarks of spirits were seized from the premises on a farm yesterday evening.

Manufacturers decry rise in counterfeits as agency calls for more collaboration as Agency calls for deeper collaboration in fight against Counterfeit trade.

The Anti-Counterfeit Agency held a manufacturers forum at its headquarters in Nairobi where manufacturers and innovators came together in an incisive engagement to discuss better ways of engagement in the fight against counterfeits.

In alignment with our commitment to corporate social responsibility, this year, the agency was involved in planting trees at the counterfeit destruction site owned by Envirosafe EPZ Athi-River in Machakos County. On the sunny day of 21st July, the day of counterfeit destruction, amidst the bellowing smoke above the burning kilns, a group of close to 80 participants planted trees around the site.

We are delighted to officially announce the launch of our Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 that has set out both our direction and plan for the next five years. The journey towards the launch of the strategic plan (SP) began in May, 2015 with consultancy from the Kenya School of Government.

The Agency through invitation from Ugandan Anti-Counterfeit Network (ACN) participated in a high-ranking advocacy meeting in Kampala, Uganda. ACN are the local caucus of anti-counterfeiting bodies drawn from the public and private sector that advocate for increased recognition of intellectual property laws in Uganda by policy makers.
