On Tuesday the Mashujaa Day celebrations will be held in Kisii County for the first time.
Kisii joins Mombasa, Machakos, Kakamega, and Narok counties who have held past national events.
The 20,000 capacity stadium has been given a facelift into a modern stadium joining the league of Kasarani, Nyayo, and Machakos stadiums.
The upgrade of the facility is huge in terms of money injected and areas under renovation and expansion as compared to the first phase done in 2018
President Uhuru Kenyatta during a past event at the Gusii Stadium.
The Stadium now has a carpet, well-maintained tracks, an ultra-modern locker room, and well-built stands making it a classy stadium.
The face-lift of the facility included an underground borehole, a expansive VIP Area with a sitter capacity of 3000 people, twelve spectators stands to accommodate 1,500 fans each, changing rooms, four washrooms, emergency exits, nursing rooms and a perimeter fence across the field.
Kisii stadium is just one of the many improved stadiums in Kenya that have undergone the transition as promised by the President and his Deputy back in 2013.
Among them are the Bhukhungu stadium of Kakamega and the Machakos stadium.
On Tuesday 3500 invited people will be attending the Heroes Day live from the stands, an event that will be presided by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
