ONLINE BBI report could see Kenya join these countries that have banned betting 3 years ago Iwo Bulski Post Views: 874 The Building Report Initiative (BBI) released on Wednesday has recommended abolishment of betting in the country. The report released in presence of President Uhuru Kenyatta at Bomas of Kenya proposes that Kenya’s sports betting operators “be replaced with a government-run national lottery whose proceeds, as is the case in other countries, are used for activities that uplift the youth, sports, culture and other social activities beneficial to citizens.” The report further claims that private betting industry “is leading to hopelessness and greater poverty.” Game Yetu looks at some of the countries across the world where many people do not enjoy gambling on their favourite online casinos and sports betting sites. In these countries where gambling is either regulated or prohibited, those found breaking the law end up in jail or face stiff penalties in some cases.
