BETTING KENYA Kenya – Why SMS Betting Is the Future of Gambling In Kenya 2 years ago Samuel Post Views: 804 On April 1, Cabinet Secretary Interior and Coordination of National Government, Fred Matiang’i vowed to introduce tough measures to regulate the betting sector in the country, which he accused of leading youths astray. Among the conditions that betting and gaming firms had to meet before having their licenses renewed was to be tax-compliant. Sports analysts state that the sector has a cultic following in Kenya as it has attracted investors, both local and international. Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) would later clear 10 betting companies including OdiBet, Ken Bookmakers, Mozzartbet, Betway among others.
