When Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiangi announced that all betting firms in Kenya have until July 1st to conform to government tax regulations, the picture portrayed was that of a nation engulfed in serious gambling that had become a threat to the moral fabric of the society.

In a country where circulation has dwindled over the last few years, Kenyans have been left on the lookout for any sources of money, legit or not.
