Furious Gor Mahia fans threaten to poop at KRA offices to protest betting tax



Betting fans and football enthusiasts have for the past few months been mourning and complaining of the exorbitant taxes imposed by the Government on betting firms.

Last week, social media was literally on fire as the dreaded gang of Kenyans On Twitter engaged betting companies and the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) over what gamers called ‘daylight robbery without violence’ triggered by the Government’s move to impose a 20 percent levy on bets won.

It all started after licensed betting firms OdiBets, BetLion and Betika began chopping off the 20 per cent tax on bets won by punters.

The fury was evident as betting enthusiasts went on a blame game, attacking the taxman for not taking time to understand how betting works and rushing to punish punters by slashing both their stakes and wins.

So infuriated were the betting fanatics, with some suggesting they stage a naked protest outside the taxman’s office.

One naughty chap threatened to push the protest further by nailing his testicle on the ground at Times Tower (the building that houses KRA).

“The manner in which the Government is handling the betting industry in Kenya is appalling, shocking and disastrous. It seems like a deliberate move by the concerned authorities to severely punish not only the companies but Kenyans who do business with the companies too,” lamented a social media user on a popular online forum.

A dejected Gor Mahia fan identified as Onyango threatened to mobilise the ‘green army’ and stage one of a kind protest by defecating outside Times Tower should the team not get money for sponsorship to take part in the CAF Champions League following the withdrawal of the same by SportPesa.

“Already, Mashemeji (AFC Leopards) have launched a Paybill number to raise money to pay their coach and players. But us being proud, we will not go round begging like our Shemejis, we will stage a mother of all protests and defecate at Times Tower if Gor Mahia misses any of their continental matches because of lack of money,” said the furious fan on social media.

Sportpesa stopped sponsoring both Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards after its license was withdrawn by the government.
