Everton FC Sponsor SportPesa Suspends Gambling Operations in Kenya

SportPesa has suspended its Kenya gambling operations following a steep increase in taxation on betting stakes.

Online sports gambling firms such as SportPesa have grown rapidly in the East African nation in recent years, riding a wave of betting interest.

The Kenyan government says the betting industry generated revenues of 204bn shillings (£1.6bn; $2bn) last year.

Parliament has now voted to raise the excise duty on bets, from 10% to 20%.

SportPesa said it was "disappointed" by the move and that it would stop its operations until a "non-hostile regulatory environment" returned. The firm has deactivated its website. It said the new tax comes on top of an existing 20% tax on individual gamblers' winnings.
