The Department of Trade and
Industry will be hosting a seminar on online Gambling in the country in
Pretoria next week.
The seminar will focus on the
policy position of prohibition of online gambling in South Africa, the social
and harmful effects of online gambling in the country, practical strategies to
prohibit it and approaches to effectively enforce the ban on online gambling.
The departments Bongani
Lukhele said it is important to note that the seminar follows a document that
was published by the Department of Trade and Industry which at the moments it
has been put for public comment until the 5th of July.
Stakeholders will be sharing
ideas on online gambling which by the way still remains banned in South Africa,
so they will be sharing ideas on how this will go about whether continuing with
ban, Lukhele added.
