Kenyan Treasury Secretary signals U-turn on betting tax

Kenyan Treasury Secretary Ukur Yatani has claimed the government will look to reintroduce the controversial 20% excise tax on betting stakes within six months, after it was removed from the country’s 2020 budget.Earlier this week, President Uhuru Kenyatta signed into law the Finance Bill that sets out Kenya’s budget for the coming year, confirming that the tax would be removed.Having been raised to 20% of stakes from its original 10% in 2019 – a decision that prompted local operators Sportpesa and Betin to withdraw from the market – the tax was due to be included in the 2020 budget.However, at the bill’s committee stage, lawmakers removed the tax on the basis that it had significantly reduced tax revenue from the sector, and pushed players to offshore sites.Yatani has now confirmed that the government will propose its reintroduction in the country’s National Assembly “within the next six months”.In a statement, he denied local media claims that the government had reneged on its commitment to tax and regulate the industry.“Betting activities in the country have adversely affected the social fabric of our society, particularly the youth,” Yatani explained. “In this regard, we wish to reiterate the commitment of the Government on taxation of this industry so as to contain such vices.”He pointed out that as well as introducing the 20% levy on stakes, the government had also introduced a 15% revenue tax for operators in 2018, alongside a 20% withholding tax on winnings.This withholding tax was also the subject of controversy, after it was initially unclear whether it was to be paid by players, or by operators. A court in November 2019 ruled that it applied to the players, however.

Institute of Fundraising seeks new Chair

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Institute of Fundraising seeks new Chair The Institute, itself a registered charity, is already advertising for the role, which is unpaid, although reasonable travel and out of pocket expenses will be paid.It describes the kind of candidate it is seeking:“Our new Chair will be passionate about fundraising and the role the IoF plays in leading, representing and championing the fundraising profession and community. You’ll have the gravitas to engage credibly with a wide range of stakeholders. In return you will be guaranteed an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience within an ambitious and friendly organisation.”Chairs of the Institute of FundraisingChairs of the Institute of Fundraising from 2002 to date have been, in date order: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5  106 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Howard Lake | 25 January 2017 | News The Institute of Fundraising is to recruit a new Chair to take over when Richard Taylor steps down from the role in July this year.The next Chair will work with the Board and Chief Executive of the professional membership body for fundraising in the UK to help deliver its new strategic priorities and vision – ‘Excellent fundraising for a better world’.The role would be a challenging one at any time, but is especially so given the unparalleled public criticism and questioning of some fundraising methods, charities, their leaders, and attitudes to donors throughout 2015 and 2016. Coming at a time when some research shows a continued drop in public trust in charities in the face of a continuing growth in demand for charities’ services, despite cuts in government and other funding, the choice of the next Chair of the professional body of fundraisers is clearly a significant one.The Institute has responded and changed in the face of developments within the sector, not least by surrendering its Code of Practice to the Fundraising Regulator, which replaced the Fundraising Standards Board last year. It has merged with the PFRA, presented its members’ views to government and enquiries, and provided advice on a range of external regulatory developments, not the least of which is the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The new Chair will also no doubt help support the Institute as it and the charity sector negotiate a way forward through the challenges of the departure of the UK from the European Union.  Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising leadership regulation trustees John KingstonSimon BurneJoe SaxtonPaul AmadiAlan GosschalkMark AstaritaRichard TaylorThe lack of diversity in the role to date is evident, and does not reflect the membership, not least in terms of gender. However, with parity between the number of female and male directors of fundraising at the largest 100 charities being reached this year for the first time, that element might change.Richard Taylor, Executive Director of Fundraising, Marketing and Communications at Macmillan Cancer Support and outgoing Chair, said:“It has been a huge privilege for me to be Chair of the Institute of Fundraising and a member of its Board of Trustees. The IoF is such an important organisation for fundraisers and fundraising charities across the UK and plays a vital role in leading, representing and training the fundraising community.”He added:“It has been a challenging time for the fundraising community over the last three years, but one that I think we have come through strongly. I know that I have personally grown and learnt a great deal through my tenure as Chair and can assure whoever takes on this role that they will have the full support of an amazing community behind them, making it an immensely enjoyable and rewarding experience.”Interested candidates can download the information pack (PDF) which includes details of how to apply, together with a board diversity monitoring form.The deadline for applications is Wednesday 8th February 2017 at noon..  105 total views,  1 views todaylast_img read more

Drago Held under police protection after receiving fresh death threats

first_img Organisation Reporters Without Borders today condemned renewed death threats made against Drago Held, a journalist on the daily Jutamji List, a specialist in the recent history of Croatia, and particularly war crimes during the civil war in ex-Yugoslavia (1991-1995).“It seems evident that journalists who report in war crimes have become the favourite targets of those who want to have their responsibilities in the conflict forgotten”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “It is essential that the press can do their work in the struggle against impunity and this should be supported beyond the country’s borders”, it added.“We offer our support to our Croatian colleagues who are going through difficult times. We urge the authorities to redouble efforts to identify those who made these threats and to continue police protection if it is sought”.Drago Held, was put under permanent police protection after receiving a voice message on his mobile phone yesterday warning him that he would be soon be “massacred”. He has worked for a long time investigating war crimes committed during the civil war from 1991 to 1995. He received an earlier death threat in February 2008 in the shape of a photo of a human skull accompanied by a letter advising “silence”. This warning arrived a few days after he wrote articles, in the magazine Federal Tribune about a former Croatian general, Branimir Glavas, suspected of having killed Serbian civilians in Osijek in 1991. In one of the latest articles in Jutarnji List, Drago Held returned to the case of Branimir Glavas, who was elected a deputy in the November 2007 legislative elections. The journalist also gave evidence at the opening of the trial of Glavas in 2005.This latest incident comes against a background of violence that has shaken the Croatian capital for several weeks. Ivo Pukanic, editor of the weekly Nacional, and his colleague Niko Franjic, marketing director of the NCL group, were killed in a car bombing on 24 October. Police bomb disposal services on 21 November found a dummy plastic bomb under the car of journalist Hrvoje Appelt, of the weekly Globus after it was parked outside the anti-corruption agency (USKOKO). Police put Appelt under protection. He said he had also received death threats since September 2008.

California hiker who disappeared with small dog found alive: Authorities

first_imgiStock(HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.) — An experienced hiker who went missing on Friday along with her small dog has been found alive, according to authorities in California.The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that Sheryl Powell had been located alive by a ground search team near the Montenegro Springs area.“Searchers describe her as resilient and strong but exhausted after being lost in an extremely remote area above Big Pine, CA. Mrs. Powell was met at the Bishop Airport by ambulance and will be taken to the local hospital for medical clearance.We are beyond grateful for the continued support from her family, local residents, visitors and the media. We also cannot thank our assisting agencies enough for their amazingly hard work in difficult terrain throughout this 4-day search,” the sheriff’s office said on its Facebook page.Powell, 60, of Huntington Beach, was camping with her husband Friday along with her small dog at the Grandview Campground in the Bristlecone Pine Forest area when he reported her missing to authorities.Authorities said that after Sheryl Powell and her husband picked a remote campsite, she got out of the vehicle to walk the dog while her husband re-parked their Jeep.When he finished, Sheryl Powell’s husband could not find her or their dog, authorities said. After about an hour of searching on his own, he reached out to law enforcement via his satellite device, they said.Searchers were into their fourth day of looking for her when she was found, the sheriff’s office said. Earlier Monday, authorities said her husband was not connected to her disappearance.On Monday, before it was announced that Sheryl Powell had been located, the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office said that a dog “matching the description” of the Powells’ had been found alive 2.5 miles from her last location.Authorities described Sheryl Powell as an experienced hiker who is 5 foot, 3 inches tall, 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. The campground is located at 8,600 feet and is the closest campground to the ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest.“Challenges include multiple gullies, shale slopes, low shade, direct sun and rattlesnakes,” the sheriff’s office said.On Monday, Sheryl Powell’s children, Farrah and Greg Powell, told ABC News that their parents went on remote camping trips once or twice a month. Greg Powell said his parents had left on Friday and planned to return Sunday to have dinner at his home in Hermosa Beach on Monday.“They liked to camp away from other people — that’s nothing new,” Greg Powell said. “They had gone just under a mile on this dirt road past the main camp site, found a really nice site off the road there that they liked. So they pulled in front, facing forward to check it out. Both got out of the car, decided they really loved the camp site. And then they — my mom and our dog Miley — got out of the car to stand in the shade and my dad went down the hill, did a five-point turn and came up backwards on the hill so they could facilitate unloading the vehicle. When they (his father) came back, they were gone without a trace.”Greg Powell said that his mother had nothing with her when she vanished besides the dog and that she has a bad leg, making it hard for her to run fast.Still, Farrah Powell said, her mother has a great sense of direction and is very resourceful.“Our main concern for her is that she had nothing on her — no water, no food, absolutely nothing,” she said.Greg Powell said authorities had also not seen any large animal prints or any signs of struggle or blood in the area around where his mother disappeared.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
