Kakamega: Stadium renovation

25 July 2012, 10:39 Dennis Ochande

Kakamega Municipal Council has received KES 54 million from the Ministry of Local Government to renovate and improve the infrastructure in town ahead of the annual national Inter - Municipality sports set to begin on August 18.

The Council Finance Chairperson Councilor George Baraza said that the money will be used to renovate the sporting facilities, repair roads and renovate buildings and to ensure the town’s drainage system is efficient.

Baraza said that a three and a half meter perimeter wall is being built round Bukhungu Stadium and that new shades are also to be erected at the stadium at a total cost of KES 8 million.

He said that the town will be hosting about 7000 visitors from 175 local authorities across the country and so the council is putting everything in place to ensure that the one-week tournament runs successfully.

“After the tournament, we expect Western Stima to begin playing their home matches at the renovated Bukhungu Stadium unlike the current state of affairs where they play them at Mumias Sports Complex and hence the council will begin earning revenue from this facility,” he said.

The sports include athletics, football, netball, volley ball and indoor games and the winners in each discipline will participate in the continental tournament slated for December in South Africa.
