Odibets is fully owned by Jimmy Kibaki, the son of the former and third president of the Republic of Kenya Mwai Kibaki.
The company’s head of communication is Dedan Mungai who has done a great job giving the betting firm visibility.
Odibets was considered a non-starter in the highly competitive betting world that was dominated by Sportpesa and Betin. However, the gaming company established in 2018 was here to stay and make an impact. The company hit the market like a storm and through intense and aggressive marketing rose fast to become a favorite among many Kenyans. Today, Odibets is one of the biggest betting platforms that is 100% Kenyan owned. Odibets has established itself not only as a betting company but a source of hope for the community. Through their popular campaign dubbed Odi mtaani, they have been able to help so many talents in the community. Odi mtaani seeks to find talent at grassroots levels and helps nurture and support those talents.
They currently sponsor a number of local talents and teams including the Kenya national team Harambee Stars. In 2018, they signed a Ksh 60 million three-year shirt sponsorship deal with premier league side, Mathare United, saving it from its financial woes. The deal included providing them with game kits, training kits and paying the salaries of both the players and technical team.
Recently, they signed Charles Odongo (Ugali man) as their ambassador and gifted him a gym, a new car and Ksh5,009,000 due to his desire and ability to make an impact in his hometown, Ongata Rongai.
