Whistle Blowing

Report Fraud, Corruption and Misconduct

TradeMark Africa (TMA) has zero tolerance to fraud, corruption and misconduct (including harassment) and has developed a fraud prevention policy to support an environment free from fraud, corruption and harassment.

TMA has engaged KPMG to provide secure, confidential and independent whistle-blowing channels for reporting any suspicion of irregularity involving TradeMark Africa (TMA) resources or employees. These channels are available 24/7.

This allows employees, implementing partners, suppliers and members of the public to anonymously report any unethical practices, including fraud, corruption, and misconduct. TMA commits to protect the identity of whistle-blowers.

A whistle-blower can report fraud, corruption or misconduct using any of the following secure channels;


      • Kenya: 0800 722 770 (toll-free), +27 12 567 8381
      • Uganda: +27 12 567 8383
      • Tanzania: +27 12 567 8440
      • Rwanda, Burundi, DRC – +27 12 567 8432
      • Ethiopia, Somaliland – +27 12 567 8433
      • Djibouti; Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, and South Sudan: +27 12 567 8455

Any person who makes a report of reasonably held suspicions of wrongdoing (whether through the whistle-blower line or otherwise) shall not be disadvantaged in any way by TMA, including suffering any punishment, penalty, or retaliation, as a result of making the report.

If a whistle-blower is concerned about the adequacy of TMA’s response to their report, they may also submit their concern through the whistle-blowing mechanisms of any of TMA’s donors, the contact details of which can be found on their respective official websites.
