Kenyan youths have vowed to oppose the BBI if the government goes ahead to scrap betting. Youths in social media have expressed disappoint over the proposal, stating that it’s their only source of income.
The BBI claimed that betting has destroyed the lives of youths and recommended for the scrapping of sports betting and the introduction of national lottery which is owned by the government. The youths have wondered how on earth that will solve their problems.
Several youths who took to social media said they will oppose the document and ensure it does not see the light of the day unless the government stops interfering with their livelihood.
Here are comments on Daily Nation Facebook page:

Tum K. Lemax Once betting is scrapped is when you will understand how Kenyans are United ..how can you scrap something that has self-employed graduate youths??? Remove those old men and women in government offices and employ youths first.
