Yoweri Kaguta Museveni may be accused of many things but common sense! He has banned betting and gambling and he has my support 100%…Betting and gambling are the worst addictive time bombs that will turn this nation into a country of guess work, laziness and stupidity…Gone are the days when we would watch soccer for fun, for the dribbles,for the fireworks… These days, even boys from Malekha and Shiamusinjiri glue their eyes on TV With their behinds blaring and their teeth sweating because they have placed a bet on Chelsea which can never beat Arsenal in 2019…They make a few gains but lose millions in the long run… Yet the allure for a jackpot keeps on siphoning their meagre coins until they end Hoi polloi.Some drop out of school for the illusion of easy money and even serious grown ups with children my age have not been left behind… In fact, Sportpesa shall milk you people dry. One day you shall wake up with a snake in your left pocket and a rat in your right and you will remember these words…. Whoever is wise, read between the lines…
