Traphes and Nitram Enterprise Limited had been contracted for the construction of the stadium. The company however sought an extension of two months due to changes in the design of the 20,000 capacity stadium.

According to the company’s managing director Mark Muendo, the delay had been due to the last minute changes of design.

‘‘We will be seeking for more time because of the changes in the initial design of the stadium. When we dug the pavilion, the area was soggy leading to some variations,” said Muendo.

Failure to meet the deadline by the contractors led to the termination of the contract.
