It been 2 months since giant betting firm sportpesa had their license suspended over tax evasion claims from the government.The government is demanding 61B from the 27 betting firm that were suspended.We tried to reach out to sportpesa to understand the state of affairs at their company.
Upon asking when they will be back , Sportpesa replied “Hello , we trust you are fine. We miss you too. We are still working round the clock to ensure that we resume normal operations.We shall notify you once this happens. Your patience is highly appreciated. ^MD”
We believe the company as lost more than 6B so far in revenue due to the current standoff. Sportpesa was the second most profitable company after safaricom. With a company barely 5 yrs old that was really impressive revenue scores.
Insiders informs us that the company is in final stages of negotiation with the government and positive outcome will outcome will be heard very soon.We will keep you posted on this matter.
