Ten Kenyan Betting Firms Clear First Licence Renewal Hurdle

The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has said that ten betting firms are tax compliant, a vital step in convincing the government to restore their seized gambling licences.

Litti Wambua, director of the Kenyan gambling regulator, claimed that the 27 operators which failed to have their licences renewed on July 1 must meet their “outstanding requirements” and pass ongoing “due diligence” checks, including proving that they are tax compliant, to receive the regulator’s approval.

A spokesperson for the KRA told GamblingCompliance that it has “approved only some of the gambling firms, as they have proved to us that they are tax compliant”.
