BRIEFLY

February 16, 1988

Kenya Times has hit the streets with a new look and a new part-owner: British newspaper publisher Robert Maxwell. Kenya African National Union, by law the country's only political party, bought the newspaper April 5, 1983. It is published by Kenya Times Media Trust, a joint venture between KANU Investments and Maxwell Communication Corp. Maxwell and KANU announced in January, 1987, that they would be partners in a series of media-related businesses, including a textbook publishing firm. Maxwell said he would invest $45 million in the project, which includes a 30-story, twin-tower communications center in Nairobi. Maxwell's Mirror Group Newspapers last year sent people to train Kenya Times' journalists and printers, and the newspaper received new equipment.
