E ff e c t s o f S p o r t s B e tti n g | 1 CHAPTER 1 EFFECTS OF SPORTS GAMBLING AMONG THE YOUTH IN KENYA 1.0 Introduction As a group we have decided to base our research on the effects of sports gambling among the youth in Kenya. We base our study on Kenya because sports betting started a long time ago in Kenya and other countries but the craze of gambling has greatly seen a staggering increase in recent months as more betting cites such as sportpesa, Betin have been greatly publicized by several media outlets. More youths also have access to mobile phones which also comes as a tool in accessing these betting sites 1.1 Problem statement We came up with this topic because we realized that sports gambling has become one of the activities the youth are engaging themselves into and as a result, they are wasting a lot of resources such as money which should have been used in other things to develop them. They also waste a lot of time in the process of doing so as they become addictive. It has also lead to financial constraints amongst the youth in Kenya simply because they use a lot of money in the betting games and sometimes they are forced to borrow money from friends in order to satisfy their interests in playing the betting games and this has brought more depts in their lives and one story that moved us was when a youth had so much dept accrued after borrowing money from the bank and since he could not pay it back, he committed suicide. This in turn causes emotional torture to the family and friends of the one who commits suicide.

Therefore this research paper will help us find out these effects and explore the causes and also find out other alternatives to gambling. 1.2 Purpose of the Study We see the need of carrying out this research because we want to find out the effects of sport gambling among the Kenyan youth. Another objective for this research is in order to find out and explore the causes of this type of gambling that has really affected the Kenyan youths in one way or the other. To add on this we not only want to find out these causes and the effects but we also want to find out and see the alternatives to sports gambling and even how it can be controlled to avoid bringing menace to the lives of many youths. This research is so significant in that it will benefit the youth as they read it through and be able to understand even how they spend their money and become responsible and help them not to engage in things that may lead them into financial constraints. We also believe that this research paper will help the government to understand the extent of the effect of sports gambling in Kenya and even to help them come up and set rules and regulations governing the sports betting websites to ensure that they don’t lose truck. It can also help the government to be able to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
