In a bold move to tackle crime and help addicted youth, Kenyan government has burned at least 105 illegal gambling machines and threatened to deport any foreigners involved in selling or assembling them.

The government hopes to get rid of all illegal gambling machines by 30 June, most of which are reportedly smuggled in from China.

While Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i warned foreigners they face deportation, no one has been expelled so far.  Mr Matiang’i  has also warned government officials that they would be fired, arrested and charged if they were involved in illegal gambling activities.

Kenya’s multi-billion shilling betting industry is in the spotlight because of a 35% per cent income tax  imposed by the government. Gaming companies have protested that the tax is too high, Kenya’s Standard news online has reported.

The Counties Amusement and Gaming Society of Kenya, which represents local businesses,  said the crackdown could lead to losses in revenue for counties and the country if legal operators were caught up in the purge.

“We have received reports that the children also steal money from their parents and gamble with it. Some sell utensils to scrap metal dealers to get gambling money. All scrap metal dealers are also warned against buying scrap metal from school-going children,” James Kianda, Bungoma County Commissioner in an interview said.

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
