Facts About the KMA

The Kenya Maritime Authority was established vide Presidential Order in 2004 to oversee the transfer of responsibilities in shipping matters from the Kenya Ports Authority to an autonomous State Corporation. In 2006, it was legally constituted under the Kenya Maritime Act, No 5 with its mandate being to “regulate, coordinate and oversee maritime affairs” in the country.
