Ronald Karauri, CEO of SportPesa, has responded to a netizen who asked how soon the gaming company will return to the Kenyan market.

Karauri stated that many people had been asking him the same question but said there was no breakthrough yet.

“I have so many people asking this question. We did not get our license renewed in 2019. We submitted our application to BCLB some months ago and we are still waiting for feedback. If we do get our license renewed we shall let everyone know,” he said.

English Premier League team Everton announced that they will end their partnership agreement with SportPesa at the end of the 2019/20 football season.

“This has been a difficult decision but one that allows us to best deliver on our commercial plan and to grasp the new opportunities now open to us. The Club would like to thank SportPesa for all of the work that has been done together. Our partnership has seen our first team visit Africa on two occasions, as well as former players and Club staff take part in numerous activations in the region. This has allowed us to grow our own footprint in Africa and further strengthen our special relationship with the continent,” Everton said in a statement.
