Nairobi high court judge James Makau has suspended the ban on gambling ads after the musician Muriji Kamau Wanjohi complained that the ban robbed him of his right to make celebrity endorsements.

Wanjohi argued that the ban deprived him of income since he “earns a living thorough endorsement of products and services due to his influence and celebrity status”.

The government brought in a raft of new regulations earlier this month – including bans on such endorsements and advertising on social media – saying the rapidly growing industry was harming the young and the poor.

According to the interior ministry, the gaming industry in Kenya has grown substantially over the last five years, to 200 billion shillings ($1.98 billion) from 2 billion.

UK Labour Party’s Deputy Leader, Tom Watson, has asked the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) to cancel the gambling licenses of all online gambling operators who got their licenses after 2014. Watson has written a letter to the UKGC CEO, Neil McArthur and Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright, concerning the malpractices in the UK gambling industry.

Tom Watson had warned that problem gambling is an epidemic in disguise. He said that problem gambling is a public health issue and urged for more research into problem gambling and also for “far more specialist treatment for an addiction that ruins lives.”

Watson says that such operators would need to reapply. He believes that would help in making operators more responsible and also would weed out operators that lack professional and social integrity. He is also seeking a revision of the entire 2005 gambling act.

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish industry regulator, has launched a new whistleblower scheme for the employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering.

All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure.

In April, Spillemyndigheden has blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers. Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.
