Sport betting, Two Rivers, Gachagua top Google search in Kenya

Sports betting firms were among the most searched items in Kenya according search engine Google’s report for the month of February.

This despite efforts by the National Assembly, through Gem Legislator, Hon Jakoyo Midiwo, to enact legislation on gambling, gaming and lotteries.

Some of the betting sites that dominated last month’s searches are Kwikbet, Betin, both of which appeared in the top 10 list. Others in the list included SportPesa, Elitebet, Adbet, Betika and BetWay.

The newly opened Two Rivers Mall, the largest shopping mall in Sub-Saharan Africa outside South Africa, was the second most searched item behind Kenya Ordnance Factories Corporation, a Kitale-based state-owned defense corporation, which is the only ammunition manufacturer in Kenya.

Former Governor of Nyeri County, Nderitu Gachagua, who passed on at the age of 64 in a London hospital, was third on the list.


Gospel songstress, Eunice Njeri, who annulled her marriage to fellow US-based gospel rapper, Isaac Bukasa, within 24 hours of their wedding in the United States, came in fourth while in fifth place was Valentine’s Day that is marked worldwide on February 14.

“Valentine’s took the fifth position and many also looked for Valentine’s Quotes to share with their loved ones,” a report from the search engine noted.

Ailing Kenyan events organizer and the founder of Tru Blaq Events, Big Kev, who has been battling brain tumor for approximately 10 years, PricewaterhouseCoopers Kenya and troubled national carrier, Kenya Airways, also made it into the top 10 list.

Interest in KQ stems from a recent announcement by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority that the United States Government had granted Kenya “Category One Status” meaning that the airline operators, both in Kenya and the US will now be allowed to carry on operations.
