Lest We Forget The History Of Masinde Muliro Stadium At Kanduyi Sub County In Bungoma County

By Prof Barasa Nyukuri

Kanduyi Stadium was established in 1956 but actual construction began in the 1960’s under the County Council of Bungoma, which also included a standard 400m track.

It was one of the few stadiums constructed by excavating the playing field to create a Stadium effect even without properly constructed terraces.

 

Masinde Muliro Kanduyi Stadium, located in Bungoma, is slowly undergoing a transformation to become a modern, world class facility.

Phase 1 under former Governor Wycliffe Wafula Wangamati was initially planned to cost KSH. 789 Million but the duty bearers did illegal and irregular variation to over 1 Billion.

The Stadium will cost the county government a total of Ksh.2b for phase 1 and 2.

The Stadium was named after Masinde Muliro, one of the prominent leaders in the Bukusu Community.

It is hosting Madaraka Day, a National Event on 1st June 2024.

Joy and pain in equal measure as Kanduyi Stadium is being upgraded
under Governor Kenneth Makelo Lusaka in partnership with the National Government.

The Stadium was renamed in honor of freedom fighter Masinde Muliro.

The Stadium stands as a testament to Bungoma’s rich history and heritage.

No one single leader has the legitimacy and moral authority to claim that he was the one who constructed Masinde Muliro.

County Government of Bungoma projects are funded by tax payers resources and not individual politicians from their pockets.

There will be no vacuum in the County Government of Bungoma at any given time.

 

 

Leaders come and go but Bungoma County will remain.
