The Kenyatta Sports Ground in Kisumu will be renamed after Kenya’s first Vice President Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. While speaking during the groundbreaking ceremony of Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium, ODM leader Raila Odinga also said the facility which was supposed to be built in Kisumu’s CBD instead of the current location in Mamboleo.
Earlier on President Uhuru and the ODM leader were welcomed by the Kisumu County Commissioner Josephine Ouko, a presidential port overseer delegate together with Nyanza Regional Commissioner Magu Mutindika. The two leaders were then driven straight to the Kisumu state lodge.
Reports privy to their itinerary indicate that they were to flag a number of projects among others, the newly refurbished Marine Training School inside the port.
“Preparations have been concluded for the President’s visit, and more details will be given in due course,” said a source not authorised to speak to the Press.
