H.E AWITI IMPRESSED WITH STADIUM PROGRESSBushnell Odhiambo
H.E Governor Cyprian Awiti on Wednesday inspected construction of the first phase of Sh.360 Million Homa Bay stadium to be complete by May 2021.
The Governor was impressed with the works thus far, but stressed the need for the contractor to fast-track the construction works.
He was speaking to the media when he said the 9,000-seater stadium will have ultra-modern facilities and will be ready to hold sporting activities in football, athletics among other sports.
“I expect quality works because funds for the completion of the first phase are available for the contractor,” He said, adding that his administration is keen to complete this flagship project in time.
He said the project will create opportunities for youth to exploit their untapped talents and will create employment.
“This is one of the key flagship projects that will soon be operational, the others being Kigoto Maize mill and the Animal feeds factories in Suba and Arujo sub-counties, respectively,” Awiti said.
County Chief Executive for Sports, Mr. Fredrick Odero said the project construction had slowed down due to Covid-19 pandemic, which halted ongoing works for months, but said they resumed January.
“The race to complete phase one is on course and the stadium should be ready to host sporting activities by May, 2021.”
