Govt to build a world class stadium

In time for this year's Madaraka Day celebrations, the government will finish building a brand-new, ultra-modern stadium in Embu County in a record-breaking five months.

An accelerated timeline will be used to transform the Njukiri venue, which has been the site of the annual ASK agricultural exhibits, into a 20,000-seat arena.

The facility will include a number of amenities that will make up a top-notch stadium, according to Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo. It will be ready in time for the ceremony in June and serve as the main operational infrastructure for the development of a sports city in Embu County.

“We are constructing a stadium from scratch in four and half months. The stadium will be a big milestone for Embu county in readiness for the celebrations and host to other future events,” he said during a needs assessment tour at the site.

The project will be co-funded by the two levels of government, with a technical team already working out the cost implications of the construction works.

The PS further noted that the team is consulting with other stakeholders, key among them the Agricultural Society of Kenya, which has been managing the showground, with a view to unlocking any bottlenecks that may constrain execution of the project.
