Betway, one of the biggest operators in the Kenya Gambling market quits and has permanently closed down its operations in the East African country. Betway kenya
The following announcement appears on the company’s Kenyan website as seen by iGaming Afrika.
Customers have been advised to contact the company’s support department in case they have any queries.
It’s reason unfortunate that these brands are leaving Kenya. African governments should think deeply before embarking on reforms because it will hurt the industry badly. Imagine the number of jobs already lost. Very unfortunate.said John Bamidele, Consultant Softswiss Africa Betway kenya
A message to Betway Kenya Partners
All affiliates or partners who were promoting the brand across various channels such as blogs, tipping sites, and social media were also notified to stop promoting the brand as they had already stopped their operations in Kenya.
The announcement comes just a few days after the popular brand Betking exited Kenya.
Although it may not be clear as to why the two companies have made a decision to exit the market, however, it is highly likely that higher taxation measures by the Kenyan government may have pushed the brands to their feet hence resulting in them halting their operations in the country.
