Professor Makau Mutua, a strong critic of Uhuru's administration, is the chairman of IDLO's advisory board.

In a two-page letter by the chairman of the NGO Coordination Board Fazul Mohammed addressed to IDLO boss Irene Khan, the government has ordered that its offices be shut down and the Central Bank ordered to freeze all its accounts in Kenya until further notice.

The government accuses IDLO of underhand deals far from its mandate as a charitable organisation.
