The communication rattled Kenyans who questioned why Sportpesa was banned yet was equally sponsoring the local league. While the deal sounded good and promising for struggling local soccer teams, the majority of Kenyans suspected a sinister move in the partnership. Sportpesa was forced out of the market in September 2019 after being embroiled in a protracted tax evasion tussle with the government. While the state accused the betting firm of evading the remitting taxes, Sportpesa submitted tax compliance documents in court and even before a parliamentary committee tasks with probing into the allegations. Sportpesa was also accused of contributing to crimes, poverty, debts among youths and insecurity in the county. The government then introduced more punitive policies including a 15% tax on betting companies and a 20% withholding tax on punters winnings. When it became apparent that the government was determined to force betting firms out, Sportpesa and many other companies that could not withstand the tough regulations pulled out.
