Latest shocking statistics show that boda boda riders, housewives, house girls,university/college students, police officers and watchmen gamble the most in Kenya. Out of the 14 million active gamblers, at least 5 million fall into these groups. It’s quite unfortunate that these are the most underpaid people in the country but they spend a good proportion towards gambling.
Last year while providing betting tips, I had a chance to interact with one of our clents, this is what she told me:
“Mume wangu pesa ananiachia ni kidogo yet I don’t have any other source of income.Ile mia ananipatia nachukua 50 nanunua mboga,ingine nabet nayo.Ile siku nitaangukia jackpot nitahama”.This was a house wife explaining to me.
I also have numerous contacts for police officers and KDF personnel, most of them are actively gambling not because they are broke, but because they are idle, especially KDF.It’s almost impossible to find someone in KDF or police force in interior parts of Kenya who doesn’t bet. One police officer working in North Easter Kenya intimated to me,”hapa unajua ni ukame,hatuna familia huku,pia hatuna kazi nyingi ya kufanya.Inabidi tuwekelee ili siku iishe haraka na tuchangamke”
One group that’s most affected by gambling is boda boda riders.These guys collect between Ksh500 and Ksh3,000 per day. One weakness they have is that since money comes at any time, they believe even if they lose all the money today, they will still collect more tomorrow. Gambling is so addictive, when you try once, you find yourself betting every day. Most boda boda people spend almost ¾ of their income on gambling, they have this blind believe that they will one day hit the jackpot.
I also deal with hundreds of house girls. I believe there is no single house girl in this country who doesn’t know about gambling. I can swear, more than half of house girls, especially in urban areas gamble. One common reasoning among house girls is that no matter how often they lose, one day they will be millionaires.
On average house girls earn Ksh 4,000 per month but those who gamble spend up to Ksh3,000 each month to chase for the jackpot millions.
Watchmen also gambler because they are underpaid.Most of them spend up to Ksh2,000 each every month to gamble.They also have alot of time on their disposal especially those working at night,this gives them opportunity to gamble.
The last and most notorious group is,university or college students.They have so much time at their disposal and money from their parents with zero responsibilities.It’s hard to find a university student who is not addicted to gambling.
While these people continue to lose money to betting companies, the government is getting taxes while owners of the betting sites are becoming millionaires each dawn.
