NWGB’s ‘Operation Clean-Up” Intensified


T


he South African Police Service working hand in glove with the North West Gambling Board have confiscated 41 computers and 31 Central


Processing Units which have been allegedly used for illegal gambling in Mahikeng recently. Acting CEO of the Board Ms. Segomotso Motlhabane said the operation is part of ongoing efforts by the Board and the Department of Economic and Enterprise Development to ensure that there is compliance in relation to gambling legislation. “We are duty bound as the Board to ensure that there is


compliance. We are also mandated to ensure that we collect enough taxes and levies to help government address various matters of socio-economic concern. We are currently losing thirty million rand per annum due to illegal gambling. And we are saying that this must stop,” Motlhabane maintained. More often than not punters are lured into illegal gambling activities only to be robbed of their monies and belongings. Chairperson of the Board, Mr. Lavelle Vere maintained that failure to deal with illegal gambling operation will have serious ramifications for the gambling industry particularly punters. “By clamping down such illegal gambling operations we


are exercising our mandate of protecting punters against unscrupulous individuals who are giving our industry a bad name,” said Vere. MEC for Finance, Economy and Enterprise


Development, Hon. Wendy Nelson, maintained that it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that there is a regulatory environment which is conducive for business to thrive and also protects employees and communities of any harmful acts. “A more concerted effort is needed to ensure that there is also compliance in many facets such as checking if the employees are registered, check if there is adherence to things like Occupational Health and Safety Act as well and that’s where departments of Labour, Health and Home Affairs comes in,” MEC Nelson maintained.
