Why DPP's latest order has excited Kenyan media

The order was issued on Wednesday afternoon

Haji ordered the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) to conduct an investigation on the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.

He further directed that he be served with a detailed report within 21 days for action.

The ministry, through the Government Advertising Agency (GAA), has taken advertising space worth more than Sh2.5 billion which it has delayed to pay.

Falling revenues

The Nation Media Group, Standard Media Group, and Media Max, have been particularly hit with the delayed payments as government adverts contribute to about 30 percent of their revenue.

Standard Group is claiming Sh931 million from the government, Nation is asking for Sh835 million, while Media Max Network is yet to recover Sh462 million from the financial year ended June 2018.

Royal Media services and the Star newspaper are demanding Sh60 million and Sh423 million respectively.
