Governor Wycliffe Wangamati-led Bungoma County Government is going on with the construction and expansion of multi-million Masinde Muliro Kanduyi Stadium.
Photos seen by Dailytrends.co.ke show the construction process in progress with thousands of concrete pillars that are to hold sitting terraces already raised.
The Masinde Muliro-Kanduyi Stadium is situated in Bungoma County, a place known for producing some of the best athletes in Kenya.
The construction of the modern stadium will cost Bungoma County Ksh. 650 million.
The project that kicked off last year will be built in phases with the first phase set to expand the sports venue to a capacity of 5,000 people.
The first phase is set to be complete in two years time with VIP terraces that can hold 2,000 people set to be constructed alongside changing rooms, a perimeter wall, football pitch, a running track and parking area.
In the second phase, the stadium will be expanded to a 20,000-seater facility.
Once complete, the stadium will have modern facilities and offices including spectator areas, changing rooms, locker rooms for sports officials and team coaches, changing rooms for ancillary staff, washrooms, first aid and medical centre, and a pitch maintenance and control room.
There will also be a media centre, VVIP lounge, boardrooms, an anti-doping room and changing rooms for referees. The stadium will have a basketball court, football pitch, volleyball and netball courts as well as rugby, hockey and netball pitches, a swimming pool and a hall for indoor games as well as a gymnasium.
