What you need to know:

  • The rising demand for Kipchoge Keino as a competition and training venue forced the national government to start the second phase of the stadium’s refurbishing
  • When the Nation Sport team visited the venue on Monday, a gloomy picture presented itself with works having stalled way back in 2017 and no sign of resuscitation
  • Sh230 million shillings was the initial amount released from the national government while the county government was to pump in Sh100 million shillings to handle the parking lot and lighting

A new year, same old problems.
