You can patent your invention through the Ministry of Trade and Investment, under the Department of Commercial Law. The following requirements are necessary; A power of attorney between you and an accredited agent, an application or request for a patent signed by you or the agent, a full disclosure of your invention or idea in duplicate copies, and a signed declaration by you stating your full names and address, and payment of the prescribed fees.

You would also require the services of an accredited agent to help with the registration process.
