Located in Elgeyo Marakwet county, Kipchoge Keino Stadium is one of the stadiums which have been under construction for the longest period of time.It's construction began in 2016 as it was one of the stadiums which were set to host the CHAN tournament two years later which Kenya later lost the hosting rights due to delayed preparation.
Construction at the site didn't progress for long as it stalled for the first time in 2017.Works resumed at the site in 2020 and it was scheduled for delivery in July 2021 a thing that never happened.Current photos of the stadium clearly indicate that the stadium has stalled again as still past it scheduled delivery time no works are going on at the site.
The stadium was coming up in two phases at a total cost of Ksh 630 million which would see it have a capacity of upto 25000 people with the terraces being roofed.It would also have a VIP section, changing rooms, conference hall, indoor games hall among other features.
This stadium is highly used by many athletes due to it's high altitude location.What do you think should now be done to the many stalled stadiums in the country? Feel free to share your views on the comment section and remember to share and follow for more news.
