I was surprised to see an article in a local newspaper an article by Binyavanga Wainaina which I had earlier posted on Mail & Guardian. Now it turns out that the said article was cut and pasted by the newspaper.

Here is Binyavanga's response to Nairobi Star's CEO's letter:

I came across Binyavanga’s post along with the ridiculous excuse the newspaper gave...they figured since it was "freely available since it was posted on the internet."

It brings to play how so we so blatantly abuse copyright law.

I believe in Name and Shame!!!
