SportPesa is back: CEO Ronald Kauri Says

SportPesa CEO Ronald Kauri announced on Friday the betting firm return to Kenya.

Karauri said the company will focus on upholding the highest standards of service and responsible gaming.

“SportPesa is back! I’m happy to announce that the SportPesa brand is back under a new BCLB license holder,” said Karauri in a Tweet.

In October 2019, SportPesa sent home more than 400 employees following its shutdown citing “adequate taxation and non-hostile regulatory environment.”

At the time, the Government of Kenya decision to impose a 20 per cent tax on all betting stakes, a move that the firms cited as damaging on both their customers and Treasury.

Karauri added: “We are excited to explore a wide range of partnerships in Kenya over the coming weeks and months, which will prioritise the development of sports in communities across our Great Country!”
