Kericho’s Green Stadium Upgrading Kicks Off as County Prepares to Host Ruto’s First Mashujaa Day

1 min read

The government has begun upgrading the Kericho Green Stadium, which will be the venue for this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations on October 20, 2023.

PS Raymond Omollo on Thursday led the National Celebrations Steering Committee on an inspection tour of the facility, where construction of three more steel terraces is underway to increase the facility’s seating capacity to 10,000.

In attempts to bring the government closer to the people, a number of infrastructural projects have also been lined up within the Kericho municipality, key among them the upgrading of various roads and installation of streetlights as part of the benefits envisioned in the government’s policy of hosting national celebrations within the devolved units on a rotational basis.

Facilities earmarked for upgrade include the 1.58km circumferential road around Kericho open-air market, the 1km K.I.E – Isaac Salat Road, the 1.5km Guru Nanak Temple – Mosque Road, and the 1.7km Cemetery – Cereals–Siloam Road.

The decision for two out of Kenya’s three National Days to be hosted on a rotational basis by counties was started in 2016 by former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The theme for this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations (the first under President William Ruto) is Universal Healthcare.
