The Kenya Copyright Board (Kecobo) has sided with Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol in their claim that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party violated copyright laws by playing one of their popular songs on Monday.

The party used the hit song Extravaganza to announce Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua as the running mate of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Kecobo now says that the party needed a synchronised licence and not the audio licence for which Mr Odinga paid nearly Sh500,000 last week.
