While there is a rush by Kenyan clubs to woo gaming firms into sponsoring their activities, Wazito has decided to chart a new path away from the loyal pockets of gamblers.
The National Super League side-Wazito will not follow in the footsteps of Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards and the football industry at large in dealing with betting firms.
Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards are sponsored by SportPesa while Harambee Stars recently inked a deal with Betin-Kenya in the latest entry of betting firms into the Kenyan football scene.

Wazito are in the process of professionalising their operations having set up their own TV channel to broadcast their games.
They are also in the process of building their own stadium, which if it materialises, will be a first for a Kenyan professional football club.
