Government will ban Sports betting companies soon – Kenya’s Interior Minister.

Published

on

The government of Kenya has declared war on betting companies due to its adverse affects on the youth and high spending by patrons.

Kenya’s Interior Minister Dr. Fred Matiang’i, said that the government will be turning the betting industry inside out. He called for changes in the Betting and Licensing regulations. According to the reports by the local media house NTV.

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i says the betting, licensing and control sector needs to be cleaned up.
The minister ordered the Betting Control and Licensing Board to oversee that betting firms are in compliance with the taxes to avoid obstruction, reports Kenya’s Standard Media Group.

“To show that we are serious, all betting licenses in the country stand suspended effective July 1, 2019 unless the holders pay all their taxes,” said Dr. Fred Matiang’i.

Kenya recorded the highest number of youth betting with at least 76 percent of them involved in betting following a recent GeoPoll survey) carried out among youth between the ages of 17-35 in Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya.

The survey further shows that Kenyans spend the highest amount of money in gambling and the highest frequency compared to other African countries. Whilst other countries bet mostly once a month, a majority of Kenyans bet once a week spending about $50 per month mostly on football bets. Youth elsewhere spend less than $50 a month.

What of Uganda?

Kenya’s order comes months after the President of Uganda banned betting companies in the country citing the bad effect betting is having on the youth.

State Minister of Finance David Bahati, was quoted by the privately-run Daily Monitor portal as confirming that no new licenses will be issued for the betting companies and that old licenses will not be renewed upon expiration.

Ghanaian sensational female artist Klarah Kay in an interview monitored by kobbygossips.com with the host of Raggae 360, Ras Ama on EBN Tv shared her view on the recent happenings in the music industry.

Klarah Kay who has been in the music industry for the past 11 years when asked her take on the recent beef among her fellow female artists mentioned that she feels it’s an effort to pave way for the female artists since the media isn’t paying much attention to them.

She applauded Eno for her hardwork, persistence in the music industry and adviced Freda Rhymes never not to disperect her seniors in the industry. Klarah Kay mentioned she is versatile, although she can rap but she feels very good when she does Raggae and Dancehall.

“The female artists are really putting alot of effort into their craft but are not getting the support, whenever I raise this allegation I get attacks but it’s the truth. I remember when I visited Nigeria, it was crazy how people who noticed me as a musician came around to help me share my CDs without taking a penny from me. Back here in Ghana it’s different, if you don’t have a relationship with them especially DJs you’ll have to pay for the service.”

The Raggae/Dancehall artist Klarah Kay mentioned that she doesn’t smoke marijuana as people think because of her energy when she’s seen performing but rather takes it as tea. She adviced her fellow artists who have not yet reached their target to never give up and strive forward, put in lot of hardwork and never stop praying.
