Lenga usaliti yao! Khalwale urges Uhuru to ignore betting companies blackmail!

Boni Khalwale has been agreeing more and more with what the Jubilee government has been doing, if you take his recent comments. One even wonders if they are living in a parallel universe? How can the former Kakamega senator be so enthusiastic about the new government’s measures, when he nary agreed with them when he was still a legislator. Wonders never cease is all we can say.

But this story is not about the man’s allegiances but what he is co-signing to. The government instituted a 35% tax on betting companies, that the companies say would make both sponsoring sports teams and making a profit difficult. So in a quick rejoinder to the courts upholding the government’s decree, the betting firm, Sportpesa immediately cancelled all sponsorship deals with teams within the country.

The Bulgarian-owned company has, however, issued a notice to appeal against the High Court’s judgment, saying that the increased tax rate is in breach of Article 201 of the Constitution which demands the public finance system promotes an equitable society where the tax burden shall be shared fairly.

But the bullfighter as he is affectionately referred to by some has come out to defend the government’s actions. He said what Sportpesa was doing was tantamount to blackmail and that Uhuru Kenyatta should not be taken hostage. He made his point in a couple of tweets. He wrote:


He reaffirmed his position later in another tweet writing:

Whatever your opinion on betting and betting companies, this is a delicate matter that should be dealt with sensitively. I believe that there is a middle ground that can be reached if a compromise was to be had.
