Nairobi - Machakos will host the national team Harambee Stars in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup semi-finals.
This is after Kisumu City failed to have the Moi Stadium ready for the clashes.
The Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos will be the venue for the semi-final clash between the Stars and Tanzania which will be played Tuesday.
Sudan will take on Zambia in the other semi-final on the same day at the Mombasa Municipal Stadium.
FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya said the two venues were rewarded with the hosting rights after stellar displays in the earlier rounds.
" The two towns were excellent venues and we thus thought it wise to reward them for the great job done, he said.
The final will be played Thursday at the Nyayo National Stadium as Kenya celebrates 50 years of independence.
