@UKenyatta must resist the blackmail by @SportPesa! This fellows rake in, in excess of 15 billion per annum, without as little as selling any goods or services. They must pay tax! We cannot just turn our country into a national casino!— Boni Khalwale (@KBonimtetezi) January 2, 2018
His anger was aroused when it emerged that 76% of the youth in kenya are actively gambling away their money and left in poverty.
Interior Cabinet Secretary DR Fred Matiang’i had questioned why sportpesa deposits half of its total daily earnings in Bulgaria.
In a statement, Matiang’i says betting companies that will not benefit the country will be shut down anytime soon unless they change.
It is estimated that half of the money deposited to Sportpesa everyday is directly wired to Bulgaria.
There is no known local intermediary financial institution that such a colossal amount of money passes through apart from few millions at Chase Bank.
