More than 300,000 registered teachers will have access to the Nation Media Group’s newspapers for a month, NMG Chief Executive Officer Stephen Gitagama said yesterday.
“I am glad to announce that we will be giving our teachers 30 days’ free subscription to our e-papers, and they will access all the papers online,” he said.
“NMG has worked closely with teachers over the years because the media business and teaching are related. Teachers belong to us, and we belong to them,” Mr Gitagama added.
He said after a month, NMG would review the teachers’ interest and give them a special subsidised rate of Sh20 per newspaper.
“This will be very significant at this particular time of the [Covid-19] pandemic, when teachers are at home and schools closed. They will continue being informed until schools reopen,” he said.
The NMG has special education products, including Junior Spot and Young Nation, as well as KCPE and KCSE past papers, a Swahili hub in Tanzania and Taifa Leo.
