President Uhuru Kenyatta has issued a ban on content service providers Skiza and Viusasa.

The president said that the platforms will cease operation on grounds that they sit outside the Collection Management organization.

“Skiza and Viusasa will be eliminated because they sit outside the collection management organisations,” the president said

The president also directed that  all payment of royalties for local content producers be channeled through the Kenya Copyright Board.

“Kenyans are talented and music industry lucrative. They are getting low returns and we must allow their investments to pay off. I believe that in this way we can do exceptionally well. I direct the ICT ministry to work with stakeholders to resolve the legacy issues that have plagued the rights issue,” he added
