THIKA STADIUM TO BE RENOVATED AND SITTING CAPACITY INCREASED TO 8000


Kiambu County plans to expand Thika Sub-County Stadium from its current sitting capacity of 2000 to 8000 people. This initiative, according to County Executive Chair Youth Affairs and Sports, Machel Waikenda will transform sports in the county.

Waikenda who spoke on Friday averred that the ministry is bent on enhancing sports through refurbishment of existing facilities.
“Sports in Kiambu are rife and we have embarked on mission to make sure that all facilities aiding them are in good condition while we build others,” he said.

The county government of Kiambu has set aside Sh60 million which will be used in renovating sports grounds across the sixty wards in Kiambu County.

“Every ward has been allocated sh1 million which will be used to renovate the sports ground in that particular ward as a way to tap talent and also nurture sports in the county,” he said.

Also, the county government will construct basket ball courts across the region in tapping sports talents.
Waikenda urged other stakeholders to support sports in the county saying that many teams in football have been hampered by lack of funds.

He said that they rely on the county government for financial support but at times, the funds are not enough to support all the teams.
