President Uhuru has today revealed that he ordered Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigate Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) and other Content Management Organizations (CMOs) over the use of money meant for artistes.
Speaking during the burial of Benga musician John De’Mathew, the president stated that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) will also be involved in the investigations over a possible collusion between the Kenya Copyright Board (KECOBO) and CMOs.
Rogue MCSK was on the spotlight mid this month when it sent most notable musicians Kshs. 2530 ‘na ya kutoa’.
The CEO Ms. Milka Kulati defended the organisation by saying that the money had only been collected for a brief period of time and that it is ‘the best ever remitted in the history of MCSK existence’.
Kenyan Bulletin hopes that the president’s warning won’t be hot air as usual and that creative Kenyans will eat the fruits of their labor.
