President Uhuru Kenyatta has injected fresh impetus in his government’s efforts to deliver first class sports facilities in Kisumu and Eldoret.
Recently, Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, in a whirlwind tour of Kisumu and Uasin Gishu counties, issued a new pledge to develop grounds in the towns.
She said President Kenyatta wants Eldoret’s Kipchoge Keino Stadium completed “as soon as possible” while in Kisumu, the CS disclosed plans for a new stadium altogether, away from the controversial Moi Stadium.

Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed and her Principal Secretary Joe Okudo were scheduled to tour the facility, but Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong'o diverted them due to the pathetic state of the facility. The County Government instead opted to take the CS to Kenyatta Sportsground.
Two days ago, Nation Sport highlighted the stalled Kipchoge Keino Stadium project where full-grown grass dominates the playing surface with deep trenches that were left by the contractor when the works stalled in 2017, greeting visitors.
Speaking at the stadium in Eldoret yesterday, Amina said the stalled project will start soon and will be completed immediately after the government holds discussions with the contractors on how to kick-start the stalled works.
