Whistle Blowing

Report Fraud, Corruption and Misconduct

TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) 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.

TMEA has engaged KPMG to provide secure, confidential and independent whistle-blowing channels for reporting any suspicion of irregularity involving TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) 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. TMEA commits to protect the identity of whistle-blowers.

A whistle-blower can report fraud, corruption or misconduct using any of the following secure
channels;
1. Telephone:
• Kenya: 0800 722 770 (toll-free)
• Uganda: 0800 113 220 (toll-free)
• Tanzania: 0800 750 083 (toll-free)
• Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Rwanda and South Sudan: +254 740 023 702

2. Email: tmeaspeak-up@kpmg.com

3. Web-portal: www.thornhill.co.za/kpmgeaethicsportal
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 TMEA, including suffering any punishment, penalty, or retaliation, as a result of making the report.

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