The gambling firm Mozzart Bet Kenya manager Sasa Krneta who leads a money laundering syndicate still continues to deny Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) billions of shillings after successfully pocketing its officers to evade tax.
Krneta is also working with foreign criminals, two Serbians (Melentijevic Branimir, Loncar Koviljka) and a Zimbwabwean Emmanuel Charumbira who all are directors in his gambling firm and the Betting Control and Lincensing Board Manager Peter Mbugi.
Officers from serious agencies as Economic and Serious Economic Crimes and National Intelligence Services have also been dragged in Krneta and Mozzart’s money laundering business.
BCLB’s boss being in the pockets of Krneta is a blow to Interior CS Fred Matiang’s efforts to illegalize betting where criminals are trooping to rinse dirty money.
Mbugi was selected by Matiang’i after Liti Wambua was kicked out for dismal performance but the new manager remains a core member of Krneta’s cartel under the watch of the BCLB’ s board chair Cyrus Maina.
Krneta runs secret bank accounts to handle dirty proceedings from Mozzartbet under the pretense that he is offering various services.
To cover up more of his dirty dealings, Krneta is now involved in a serious PR exersicise, he is contributing to the community to grab the attention of ‘githeri media’, hoodwink the public and keep the toothless investigating authorities at bay.
The gambling firm that is known for rampant sexual favors to bag employment has handsomely paid the local media to highlight their PR gimmicks when they are attracting negative public.
Only foreigners with suspicious work permits are hired in key and strategic positions of the firm that recently gifted Kakamega Home Boyz FC with a Sh20 million sponsorship.
The gambling firm is also associated with the former ODM MP Musa Sirma has been conning local gamblers by deliberately failing to announce jackpot winners.
Sirma is a sycophant to Baringo Senator Gideon Moi who name he has been using to keep off agents investigating the firm’s dirty business.
Mozzartbet that recently gifted a man who does not exist some Sh10 million has also been bribing the government by contributing millions to help in the fight against covid-19.
It has also donated PPEs, masks, disinfectants, kits and thermometer. Their donations are branded to sell their tainted name.
The High Court recently froze more than Sh300 million, the gambling firm was cleaning for a client who had received Sh500 millions through dirty dealings with Kimaco Connections Ltd and Pescom Kenya Ltd.
The two companies are associated with Consolata Kiilu, the wife of ex MP Peter Kiilu.
Mozzart has now resorted to rolling out community programmes to repair its tarterred image. Some of the health facilities that have benefitted include Kayole 1 Health Centre, Ngara Health Centre and Mathare North Heath Centre among others.
But the equipment donated are not worth the amount Mozzart has been stating, they are obsolete second hands in very poor conditions.
