There is only one reason why Sportpesa has delayed to come and it’s because of this reason. The company was cleared by KRA a week ago, which gave it a go ahead to apply for a new license from BCLB, the board that oversees the operations of betting companies in Kenya.It’s not automatically that the institution will accept the application from Sportpesa, there are other major conditions the betting site must meet.
In August Betway was cleared by KRA,it took them almost 4 weeks for them to get their license renewed by BCLB.Kenyans might be forced to wait for one or two more weeks before Sportpesa announces its return. This is because it takes a n average of two weeks to get all the approvals.
Nobody is sure when Sportpesa will return except BCLB, but the good news is that Safaricom will unblock Sportpesa paybill number immediately they are notified by the board to do so.If Sportpesa gets the license today, they will definitely return today.
