Henry Rotich, the Treasury Cabinet Secretary in Kenya, has introduced 10% excise duty on sports betting stakes.

“Betting has become quite spread and its expansion has had negative social effect particularly to the youth and vulnerable members of our society, and in order to curtail the negative effect arising from betting activities, I propose to introduce excise duty on betting activities at 10 percent at the amount staked,” Rotich said.

MPs who disagreed with the CS’s betting allocation has elicited reactions.

“I am disappointed of taxation, betting it has negative social effect for our young people and as National Assembly we suggested taxation should be 30 percent but today I was surprised the minister only increased by 10 percent, that will not cure the menace. Gambling has destroyed our society and we cannot continue raising our children through guess work. I am so unhappy with position of the minister where he has taxed only 10 percent… he should have taxed more as he did with beer and cigarettes,” Ndhiwa MP Martin Peters Owino said.

The High Court of Kenya has annulled the recently introduced ban on gambling ads.

“The ban was null and void and was tainted with illegality, unreasonableness, and procedural impropriety,” Justice John Mativo said.

Fred Matiang’i, the Interior Minister of Kenya, announced late last month that number of new rules in connection with how betting and gaming products were to be promoted in the country would be introduced.

Under those rules, gambling operators would have been required to submit all their ads for approval from the Betting Control and Licensing Board. In addition, ads of gaming and betting products would only have been permitted between 10 pm and 6am. Social media and outdoor advertising would have been fully banned in the African nation. The new rules also banned celebrity endorsements.

On May 20, Justice James Makau ordered that the implementation of the new gambling advertising restrictions be paused.
