On the eve of schools' opening, the chairman of the Kenya Publishers' Association and managing director of the East African Educational Publishers, Mr Barrack Muluka, alleged that some approved books were sub-standard.

However, some publishers say Mr Muluka hardly speaks for them.
...
One says: "At times, Mr Muluka is simply addressing the board of directors and staff of EAEP to justify why the firm is doing poorly."

Muluka resigns as publishers' chairman

...
Mr Barrack Muluka has resigned as chairman of the Kenya Publishers' Association, three months before the expiry of his two-year term.
Muluka, who is also the managing director of the East African Educational Publishers (EAEP), quit the leadership of the 22-member club last week following a row with senior Education ministry officials and colleagues.
...
"I take note that the political elite in Jogoo House (the Ministry of Education headquarters) and their cronies in British publishing concerns in Kenya have embarked on a singular war against my person and institutions I represent," said Muluka in his resignation letter dated January 13.
...
Muluka has persistently accused the ministry of favouring certain publishers in the evaluation and approval of school textbooks.


Publishers accuse KIE

www.eastandard.net [cached]

In a strongly-worded letter dated May 27 and signed by KPA chairman, Mr Barrack Muluka, the publishers are threatening to take court action against KIE "to ensure they get the value of their investment".

The letter is also copied to the Department for International Development (DfID) and the World Bank which are collaborating with the Government in giving primary schools funds to buy textbooks.
The exercise was launched in 2002 as part of the revised education curriculum for primary and secondary schools which will culminate in a brand new examination for both Standard Eight and Form Four in 2006.
Muluka, who is also East African Educational Publishers managing director, says: "We have concrete evidence that some of your staff have written books in the past and are now not only constituting the evaluation panels but also involved in training the evaluators and leading in the evaluation processes."

On July 22, 2006, Barrack Muluka, an opposition-supporting columnist for the Standard newspaper, gave what he claimed were the facts backing up Shikuku's case.

...
The total tax collected in Kenya according to Muluka and company amounts to 23.7 billion shillings.
...
As Muluka stated in a later column (on January 6, 2007), "It's ethnicity stupid,"â€"meaning that ethnic mobilization for or against the offending center of the country will decide the next election.
On that Muluka may be right.
