The government directive of closing down the 27 Betting firms has a bigger negative effect on Kenyan clubs than before. AFC Leopards will also shut down its operations as it depends 100% on sports. The same applies to Kariobangi sharks with Betin, Kenya Rugby sponsorship, and other sports. 

AFC Leopards’ Dan Shikanda also appearing on the show said:

“Ingwe depends on a hundred percent on SportPesa funding. We simply don’t know where we go from here. The government, we believe, has the best interest of everyone including Leopards,” Shikanda said.

"It is doom and gloom. It is our prayer that the standoff between the government and betting firms is resolved amicably,” Ambrose Rachier, who is also the chair of SportPesa Premier League, said.

“Of course we understand the position of the government, but whatever action they take they should also consider the sports industry. SportPesa and other betting companies have invested millions of shillings,” he added
