Counterfeit books hurting Kenya's printers

    Kenya's publishing business, the biggest in the region, is being threatened by piracy and illegal imports.

    The country supplies countries across all of East and Central Africa, but local authors are saying that the counterfeit book business is hurting their bottomline.

    The government of Kenya is also doing little to stop the flood of fake copies of books, which are worth millions.
