Under the laws of Kenya, false pretence is defined as "Any representation, made by words, writing or conduct, of a matter of fact, either past or present, which representation is false in fact, and which the person making it knows to be false or does not believe to be true."

The law further prescribes a three-year-sentence for all who are found guilty of the offence.
