Nairobi - Civil society activists say Kenya Revenue Authority officials and police have raided the offices of a group that found anomalies in the recent elections in which President Uhuru Kenyatta was re-elected.

Maina Kiai, a former expert for the United Nations on the rights to freedom of assembly and association, said Wednesday that the raid comes a day after a request by the government's body to oversee non-governmental organizations to arrest the board of African Centre for Open Governance saying they were not registered.

Kiai said the Africorg is not registered as non-governmental organization but as a company which falls under a different oversight authority.

Kiai said the government is acting "like people who have stolen," elections.
