Nakuru - Rift Valley director of Music Copyright Society of Kenya, Bernard Mukaisi, has said that they have not authorized any police officers to collect money on behalf of MCSK.
Mukaisi noted that some police officers and musicians have been going around Nakuru County collecting money from unsuspecting members of the public.
“MCSK has not in anyway mandated any police officer or musician to collect money on our behalf because we have a policy that guides us,” he said.
Speaking to the media in Nakuru town Monday, Mukaisi said all officials of MCSK have identification cards and that they are supposed to produce them whenever they visit business premises.
The Rift Valley director of MCSK said all music license payments should be made through a paybill number.
He further said that only MCSK has the power to penalize a person who is found operating without the license but not a police officer or artists.
Mukaisi also said there is no other body apart from MSCK that is authorized to collect money from the public.
“MCSK is the only music body which is recognized by the government and the public,” he said.
