Music vendors complaing about harrassment

12 July 2012, 12:57 Kelvin Mureithi

Music vendors in Meru town recently sought audience with the local police boss demanding for his intervention over what they termed as exploitation and harassment by officers who have been moving into their stores to inspect whether they were selling video and compact disks of pirated music.

"They were demanding   Shs 3000"shouted one of the victims in the crowd. What they termed as bribery from the shop owners. They said that music officers who were accompanied by the police were threatening to close down their shops and confiscate even genuine video and compact disks which they were selling to the public.

They lamented that  the same officers  had allowed them to sell compact disks and video cassettes for reggae music and other foreign artists but had reneged on the agreement and were demanding for money.

They expressed fear that they might be forced to close down their shops if the copyright officers who licensed them refused them to sell foreign music in their premises.

However they were assured of the matter to be taken care off from the start.
