The construction of Manga stadium in Kenya is still underdeveloped after incurring so many cost.

So far the project which kick-off in 2014 has seen no decent progress with some Sh109 million been pumped into the stadium construction.

Six years later, only a fence and a foundation stone for the construction of the main pavilion is all that stands on the parcel of land measuring roughly eight hectares where the stadium ought to have been.

According to the 2014-2015 financial year, the county government injected Sh63 million into the project but all the money went into fencing and drilling of a borehole at the facility, according to the county’s executive for sports, Johnston Obike.

He also said another Sh10 million was used the following financial year in levelling the playing surface. Another Sh36 million was allocated to the same project in 2018-2019 financial year but surprisingly, no work was done.

According to Obike, “After completing levelling of the grounds in 2016, no contractor qualified for the other work inside the stadium and hence the project was suspended until last year when we got a qualified contractor. The contractor has been on site since July last year working on the main pavilion.”
