About Peleza


Peleza is the first East African company solely specialised in Background Checks. We use official and reliable national and international data sources to screen your candidates while complying with any privacy legislation in force.


We offer numerous types of checks from identification, financial, criminal verification and much more. We are based in Nairobi, Kenya and our presence in East Africa allows to physically check and validate the information we receive from our data sources both online and offline.
We are active members of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS). Through the association we have partnered with other world class screening companies so as to offer efficient turnaround irrespective of where the data is to be verified in the world.

We've come from far

We leverage upon a truly efficient infrastructure of financial control systems to run extremely thorough background checks. We know how to spot people who can keep their promises.

Why Background Checks are so important

The world is nowadays more connected than ever. The East African region has become a true hub of business development for the entire continent. Obstacles of movement of both labour and capital across countries have been systematically removed.

Freedom brings development and change, but it also poses security issues. Who is working with you? Do you truly know them? With great power comes great responsibility. This is where we come in. We make sure you deal with the right people by running a number of customizable background checks.
