The firm which opened its doors in Kenya said it will ensure integrity in gaming and its operations.
“Amaya is not involved in any form of embezzlement and confirms that contrary to a media report we have followed due diligence and remain transparent in our operations,” Brian Steppens, the director said in a statement.
Steppens said: “A court order has been issued from the High Court stopping the Kibera Chief Magistrate from hearing and determining a case of alleged embezzlement after a charity institution moved to court.
“We want to set the records straight because it is in public interest. The media statements are false and ridiculous” Steppens said.
“The Lion Heart Self Help Group has executed an official discharge which attests that Amaya Kenya has fully paid its charitable contributions and has received the money as mutually agreed.” He said.
“We have given Sh30 million to charity in good faith. The Meru sub-district Hospital will receive Sh 1.4 million worth of equipment.”
“Embu District Hospital will also receive Sh670,000 worth of goods and equipment and there plans to give the Kenya Girl Guides Sh3.2 million worth of equipment including a car.
“Amaya has fully honored its commitment to make charitable contributions in compliance with its lottery obligations.”
