Kenya’s Interior Ministry says it has not renewed the licenses of 27 betting companies including the country’s biggest, SportPesa. SportPesa is known worldwide as a sponsor of English Premier League clubs.

In a letter to Telecom Company, Safaricom, the government said the companies have not met the outstanding renewal requirements, but reports said it is not clear what exactly these requirements are.

The government has asked Safaricom to suspend the betting companies’ telephone short codes.
