No nonsense CS FRED MATIANGI strike again as he deports all foreigners involved in betting in Kenya-Contemplates banning betting in Kenya for good

Monday May 20, 2019-Interior CS Fred Matiang'i, on Monday, ordered for the immediate deportation of foreigners involved in gambling without the relevant work permits.

Speaking during a Betting Control and Licensing Board stakeholders’ forum at the Kenya School of Government (KSG), Matiang'i stated that the Government will not allow people to come into the country and engage in unlawful businesses.

He noted that some foreigners had the habit of applying for work permits for different businesses and ended up engaging in gambling.

He warned those running gambling businesses without licenses risked deportation.

Matiang'i directed the State Department for Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa to review the work permits of all foreigners doing business in the country. 

He ordered Kihalangwa to present the report by end of business Monday.

According to the CS, he would wind up the betting sector in Kenya if it were up to him.
