We derive the expression for the electromagnetic field of a point charge at rest on the symmetry axis near a rotating Kerr black hole. This is a generalization of the previously obtained solution for the field of a point charge near a nonrotating Schwarzschild black hole. Unlike the Schwarzschild case the charge is found to give rise to magnetic fields as seen by a stationary or locally nonrotating observer.
