Betting firm Odibets is accused of abandoning its agents.
“I would like you to help me expose the rot at Odibets Kenya. I work with Odibets as an agent. Early this year the management introduced a partner’s link, which we were supposed to use in our work. Last month on date 24th the management informed us that there were issues with the link system and opted to halt. It is now almost midmonth and there is no communication from the management concerning the work resumption and last month payment. When we try to call them they don’t pick our calls and at WhatsApp they are blue ticking us. We have bills to settle and life is not easy. We are over 300 agents and we have families that depend on us. Kindly highlight our plight”, an agent who wrote to Kenyanbulletin.com said.
There are many complains concerning gambling firms in Kenya. However, this is highly unusual and points to something dire.
Sources say the firm might have run out of money to launder and thus the change of tactics.
