It is apparent that plagiarism is a crime that has descended on the books sector, specifically publishing houses. This trend is now threatening the education sector, which is the basis of our future generations. It is against the Publishing Act to (re)produce any book or publication without the consent of the author.
The government should take stern measures to stamp out this vice, which is an enemy to the quality of textbooks and readers, as well as the authors.
FRANKLIN MUKEMBU, Tharaka-Nithi.
