When will Sportpesa be back? This is the question among many Kenyans who have idolized the betting firm. Though Sportpesa is currently grounded due to the closure of their Paybill number, all signs indicate that they will resume operations before the beginning of August.
Last week the company was banking on the court decision which didn’t work for them. However, there will be a major decision from the court before the midweek jackpot starts on Wednesday this week. The court decision is important to Sportpesa and other betting companies affected by the government’s decision to close paybill numbers of 27 companies. What we are certain of is that negotiations are in top gear and anytime from now Sportpesa CEO will make positive announcement.
There are reports that Sportpesa has resolved to pay all the taxes the government has asked them to pay which amounts to over Ksh7 billion. Over time, majority shareholders will be Kenyans as the government aspire to streamline the gambling industry.
The exact time when Sportpesa will resume operations is not known, even majority of workers at the company aren’t aware, but we understand the is doing everything to bring back normal operations. We are convinced that it won’t take two weeks before your esteemed company resume normal operations.
