SE­CU­RITY THREAT

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The Bet­ting Con­trol and Li­cens­ing Board on Mon­day said the mush­room­ing of il­le­gal gam­bling ma­chines in the coun­ties is a threat to na­tional se­cu­rity. The board said the youth will be­come ad­dicted to gam­bling and “waste most of their time and hard-earned money in th­ese gam­bling dens”. The board seeks the in­ter­ven­tion of po­lice to help tame the prac­tice and save “our youth from this il­le­gal ac­tiv­ity”. It has mo­bilised chiefs and po­lice of­fi­cers to con­fis­cate the il­le­gal gam­bling ma­chines.
