Introduction

Hello and welcome to the Safaricom Anti-Money Laundering portal. The portal is designed to ensure that all staff and M-pesa agents gain knowledge that will help in complying with local and international AML legislation.
M-PESA brings many social, economic, commercial and reputational benefits to the people of Kenya and Safaricom as a company. However, as with all financial products, it has the potential of being used by criminals and terrorists to launder proceeds of crime and fund acts of terror and/or subsequent crimes. 
Therefore, implementing strong systems and controls ensures the continued growth of our revenue, and protection of our brand, while at the same time ensuring social benefits to all Kenyans.

Combating Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing is not a mere compliance issue; it is an integral component of our corporate social responsibility. A proactive approach to dealing with Money Laundering helps prevent terrorist attacks and stifles crime.

It is not just something we must do, but also something we should want to do.

This portal will help us to meet this challenge head on. It contains all we need to know about how to meet our AML responsibilities in the form of training, a Knowledge Zone, Safaricom's AML Policies and Procedures, as well as the all important form for reporting any suspicious activity to our Money Laundering Reporting Office.
