Gaming snares the poor, causes crime and splits families
The Betting Control and Licencing Board is to be commended for acting swiftly on the rise of illegal gambling across the country. Several cases of poor Kenyans spending their salaries in gambling and neglecting their family duties and roles have been reported. And this has led to breakup of many families. Gambling is also likely to result in domestic theft where children and spouses steal cash from each other. Sadly, those who operate these businesses never care to find out where the children get the money they use to bet or gamble with.
