Premier leads on the destruction of illegal gambling machines
26 Aug 2015
  Klerksdorp - Supra Mahumapelo, Premier of North West, led the SetsokotsaneProgramme
inMatlosana to destroy illegal gambling machines which continue to infiltrate the gambling
environment at the expense of legalised casinos and other recognized gambling facilities.
Brian Swetswambung, acting head of communication in the Premier’s Office, said it should be recognised that the proliferation of such illegal gambling facilities have a very harmful effect on the economic growth of the Province as these people do not pay any taxes to the government.
During this exercise by the police and members of the Hawks, Mahumapelo was accompanied by Wendy Nelson, MEC of the Department of Finance, Economy and Enterprise Development, and Collen Maine, MECof Local Government and Human Settlement, a senior representative of the Matlosana Council and members of the North West Gambling Board.
The programme started with a compliance inspection in illegal business outlets operating in Klerksdorp. Most of these businesses operated limited payout machines (LPM’s) without proper licenses as outlined in theNorth West Gambling Act, Act 02 of 2001, as amended.
North West has destroyed a large number of illegal machines since the beginning of the year and will continue enforcing the law especially, to outlets that operate illegally in Matlosana, Rustenburg
and Brits as the most affected towns in North West, said Setswambung.
Mahumapelo said illegal gambling is affecting the revenue of the province tremendously as the traders are not paying for rates and taxes as required by the law and this impact negatively in the collection of revenue by local municipalities. “The province end up not reaching the desired results of addressing the triple challenge of poverty, inequality and unemployment within our localities.”
He also indicated that North West needs to pull together through its SaamtrekSaamwerkphilosophy to fight illegal gambling which he termed as a “capital accumulation super highway that takes advantage of the poor”. He said social grants allocated to the poor are used in illegal gambling and exposed the poor to gambling addictions.
It is reported that unlicensed gambling operations collect approximately R500 000 00 revenue per year.
Mahumapelo encouraged the North West Gambling Board to strengthen its working relationship with
municipalities and all law enforcement agencies and Department of Justice and Constitutional Development to address this challenge that affect the revenue collection of the province.
He announcedthat North West will conduct a social mobilisation programme to educate communities about gambling and its effects.
