Ministry Of Sports On Spotlight Again Over Irking State Of Nyayo Stadium (Photos)

The ministry of sports is on the spotlight yet again over the sorry state of Nyayo Stadium, Kenya’s second largest sporting facility that has been under renovation for close to two years now.

Photos taken from inside the stadium by one twitter user drew anger and disgust from Kenyans, most of whom feel that the ministry is failing in its core mandate of facilitating growth of sports in the country.

Nyayo was closed to allow its upgrade to international standards. It was one of the facilities chosen to stage the 2018 Championship of African Nations (CHAN). Unfortunately Kenya was stripped of the hosting rights by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for unpreparedness.

A year down the line, the renovation works that had begun has stopped with no contractor on sight, leaving behind an eyesore, according to one tweet.

Apart from the main stadium, the swimming pool is in a pathetic state with no water in the pools but growing grass.

Meanwhile, the minister for sports Amina Mohamed, who was transferred to the docket from foreign affairs due to underperformance, appears unmoved.

She has recently come under fire for just basking in glory of success stories of our sports men and women, while doing nothing to help them.

The recent qualification of Kenya women’s rugby team for the 2020 Olympics put her office on the spotlight after the ladies almost failed to travel to Tunisia for lack of funds.
