Kenya to add anti-counterfeit to number plates


By next January, number plates issued in Kenya will include security features to deter car theft and deter fraudsters using cars as collateral to acquire loans.

The roll-out – which has been delayed from a planned start in 2015 due to legal wrangling – will start after a tender process for technology that can be used to create “digitised” number plates, including holograms, watermarks, and laser marking, reports

A system developed by Germany’s EHA Hoffman and Ugandan firm MIG International won a Sch2bn ($20m) tender for the plates, but was put on hold after an appeal by IT company Tropical Technologies, which had earlier been selected.
