Betin Kenya website is down days after the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) directed the IT firm hosting the betting firm’s web domain to bring it down over the ongoing licensing dispute.
The website hosted by tech firm Deep Africa Limited has been down since late last month, grounding the betting company’s online transactions.
Betin Kenya linked the downtime to a technical hitch, but a notice it sent to Parliament indicated that the communications regulator had ordered Deep Africa to shut down its internet web domain.
“The Communications Authority has proceeded to instruct the web hosting organisation, Deep Africa Limited, to shut down the company’s internet web domain www.betin.co.ke,” reads part of the letter to the Senate committee.
Betin Kenya is among 27 companies whose betting licences had not been renewed after June 30, pending the outcome of an inquiry about their suitability to operate in the country.
