Do The Right Thing

Betting clubs should b e avoided for those under working age because i remember when i was given money for schools and other requirements ranging ranging in hundred thousand shillings. I decided to pass via sports betting Africa (SBA) so that i may increase my money unfortunately it did not work because machines had to reduce my money for every race it had to run since i was in virtual horse racing. I cried and i told the management to refund money so that i will never come back but they refused and i lost my education carelessley like that because parents after knowing how i lost the money. they agreed never to send me to school.
