MUSIC COPYRIGHT OFFICER CONVICTED FOR BRIBERY

A Music Copyright enforcement officer was yesterday convicted of bribery charges by a magistrate's court in Isiolo.

The officer was fined KShs200, 000 or three years imprisonment in default.

Michael Wambua Kioko, of Talents Works and Rights Enforcement, was tried and convicted by the Isiolo Chief Magistrate J. Irura following his arrest by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission. His co-accused, Kelvin Muthee Kimani, was acquitted

The court heard that on March 30, 2015, both Kioko and Kimani, accompanied by police officers, were arresting employees of cyber cafes in Isiolo town for flouting music copyright laws. The court further heard that the enforcement officers were demanding bribes from the suspects in order to secure their release

The officers arrest followed a complaint filed at the EACC's Isiolo office by a cyber cafe operator, Mr. Kenson Gituri Mawira. The court was told that Kshs20,000 was recovered from them. They were charged with extortion by threats to gain a benefit contrary to section 300 (1) (a) of penal code.
