Book publishers warn over inflated text book prices

By KBC Reporter

Kenya Publishers Association has now put on notice head teachers and booksellers colluding to defraud parents by quoting high prices of text books than the set retail prices.

Addressing the press at a Nairobi hotel Sunday afternoon the publishers’ officials led by their Chairman, David Waweru, allayed fears that prices of books have gone up, saying only a few titles that constitute 5% of the entire approved books had prices revised, though marginally.

The association clarified that the price increase has been informed by the high taxes imposed on both raw materials and the final product and as such there was little the association would do until books are zero rated.
