Blow to thousands of jobless youths as MATIANG’I orders suspension of all betting companies in Kenya-They may never bet again


Monday April 1, 2019-Interior CS, Fred Matiang'i, has ordered the suspension of all betting company licenses effective July 1, 2019. 

The firms have been given three months to comply with all Government regulations including their obligations to KRA failure to which they will never operate in Kenya again.

The tough-talking CS stated that only then would the companies have their licenses renewed.

"Effective July 1, all betting licenses in the country stand suspended unless the holders have paid all their taxes," declared Matiang'i. 

"Tafadhali mimi sitaki ile ujeuri wa kawaida kuleta tax compliance certificate hapana (I don't want trickery where you submit tax compliance certificates. No) there must be evidence that tax has been paid," he added. 

The CS also cited the rise in suicides in the country which is partially contributed by lost bets from gamblers.

"500,000 young people are blacklisted by lending agencies. A majority borrow to bet. We need to clean up this sector, we are destroying our children/families," Matiang'i remarked.

He was speaking on Monday after a meeting with the Betting and Licensing Control Board (BLCB) at Kenya Charity Sweepstake House, along Mama Ngina Street, to review relevant policies in the sector.

  1. MATIANGI COME DEAL WITH WAKALI KWANZA AND WAJUKU WA NYANYA...WE ARE CALLING THE EXECUTION OF THEIR SOURCE BEDZIMBA (EX-KISAUNI MP)

  2. these are misers!

    Since, they see Kenyans playing becoming millionaires each week and realising their dreams. These zombies, are not happy and all they care is Kenyans being poor and never raise above their poverty status.

    Let them give Kenyans a beak and thank this betting farm for give Kenyans an option to instantaneously changing their life status. Their government have not offered jobs to Kenyans.

    If betting is to be attached by these mean folks, then we should not also have any ballot election but mlolongo election, where the one with the longest line wins in broad daylight.

    Winning and losing is as the chances of a coin.

    These betting farms pay taxes and that's why they are in operation.

    So, cut the crap and let Kenyans to bet and join the millionaires club on a fortune of whatever little the bet amount is.

    Wivu ni ya nini!
