Willy Paul warns Music Copyright Society of Kenya(MCSK)

An inspection executed in organizations that collect royalties on the support of musicians in Kenya has shown why artistes have been receiving peanuts.

A report released by KECOBO Chairman Mr Mutuma Mathiu on September 8 highlighted the corruption deep-rooted in the organizations including diversion of royalties, poor corporate governance and separation of roles, non-existence of critical policy documents, and breach of existent policies in human resource and finance.


“The non-compliance reveals the three societies to serious risk of funds embezzlement, civil and criminal accountability and loss of income from penalties and sanctions,” the statement read.

“The Kenya Copyright Board is looking at several possibilities in the implementation of the results of the audit report., " Mr Mathiu said. 

" The methods include a reference to Criminal Investigation Department, restoration of lost property and further administrative, policy and structural reforms in the CMO sector, once we receive the mandatory response from the CMOs, thus closing the audit report,” Mr. Mutuma Mathiu said.
