KRA has cleared 10 betting companies which have complied with the government tax regulations.

He gave all firms three months up to July 1 to seek fresh renewal of licenses upon proving tax compliance.

The state had failed to renew licenses for Betin, Betway, Betpawa, Premierbet, Lucky 2 U, 1X Bet, Mozzartbet, Dafa bet, Sportpesa, World Sport Bet, Atari Gaming, Palmsbet and Betboss.
