mCHEZA is a Kenyan bookmaker that is owned by the company Acumen Communications Limited and that works with a license provided by Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB) of Kenya.
The betting house has released its website around Christmas in 2015, but during its first year of existence the gambling page used to have only informative function while bets used to be accepted only via SMS messages. In June, on the next year, the betting company upgraded the website. The betting page moved to a higher level and since this time the sport betting lovers from Kenya have been able to place bets on their favourite sport events directly via mCHEZA website after making an official account here.
