The construction of Dandora stadium which is nearly completed is now on hold. The project is undergoing Ethics and Anti-Corruption (EACC) probe process after officials allegedly stop the work as they identify sub-standard materials been used in the construction.

These halt to construction activities has further delayed the launch date which should have been two years ago.

Speaking to the media, Stadium Manager, Godfrey Okoti said “This artificial turf has been exposed to the sun for a long and that’s against the recommendations. We fear it has been contaminated.”

The said artificial turf and a heap of construction materials is now wasting away at the entrance of the Stadium.

The investigations touch on whether the contractor changed the Bill of Quantity and used steel to support the better part of the structure instead of using concrete, thereby reducing the original coast (Sh350 million) by half.

Meanwhile local media revealed poor workmanship has been carried-out on the stadium. That leaking roofs rotting away in the dressing and medical rooms, no perimeter fence and main gate at the stadium, while patches of paint have started peeling off from the walls.

EACC officials have finished evaluating the facility but a report is yet to be submitted which is making the project to be on hold.
