The message was passed over to the sportpesa employees on Wednesday by the chief executive Ronald Karauri.
“I dont know what to say, but it appears this journey cannot continue. Im disappointed, “he said.
SportPesa last week announced it had closed operations in Kenya in the wake of a tax dispute with the government.
It is not possible to operate under the new tax rules. This has become a hostile business environment, the company said in a statement.
The dispute between SportPesa and the government has been on for three months now ever since the government withdrew licences of 15 betting firms it claimed were not paying taxes as required.
SportPesas exit also affects sponsorship deals it had signed with several football entities including Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards, Kenyan Premier League and Football Kenya Federation valued at hundreds of millions.
