In an issue which started as a single threat from the no-nonsense CS for Interior Dr. Fred Matiang’, I has now become a new twist with plans underway to deport top officials of some of the betting firms.
In one of the most fearless move, the government of Kenya has directed top telecommunications companies; Safaricom, Airtel, and Telkom Kenya to withdraw their paybill numbers for the affected betting firms.
The move to switch paybill numbers means that gamblers seeking to put their bets won’t have the means to that completely delinking the betting firms from their “customers.”
Here is the full list of betting companies in Kenya that had their licenses revoked:
- Lucky 2 U
- 1X Bet
- Dafa bet
- World Sport Bet
- Atari Gaming
- Kick Off
- Millionaire Sports Bet
- Kenya Sports Bet
