NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 29 – The Betting Control and Licensing Board has cleared gaming firm Betway Kenya to restore its operation after also being given a nod by the Kenya Revenue Authority.
Betway has relentlessly worked with relevant authorities and is glad to have been recognized for its strict levels of compliance having fulfilled requirements by BCLB and other relevant government bodies.
To uphold full compliance with taxation laws, Betway will be deducting 20% withholding tax from winnings in accordance with the law.

Betway continues to advocate responsible betting through a campaign that has been running on its social media pages dubbed ‘’Bet the Responsible Way’’.
This is to ensure that its customers understand the fundamentals of betting and continue to get the entertainment benefits that come from betting in a responsible manner that does not lead to bankruptcy, emotional distress or addiction.
In addition to this, the company has instituted measures to ensure only individuals that are of age can register and enjoy the services offered in their betting platform.
