Nyamira County Governor Amos Nyaribo has promised the completion of Manga stadium which has been stalling for years now.
The county boss toured the project on Wednesday and assured residents the project will be complete in a couple of weeks.
“One of my agendas as governor is to see our young people especially the youth have been empowered in terms of sporting activities, that is why I have directed the contractor to move with speed and complete the stadium which should be ready for use in a few weeks from now,” Nyaribo said.
He further noted his concern on various projects in the county that have stalled for years and said his government will ensure they are complete for the benefit of residents.
“We have had a problem of projects that take years to be complete, but I wish to assure our residents we will now be very keen on all the projects and monitor them on day and night basis to cone to the end of such problems,” he assured.
The Manga stadium in Nyamira County is among the flagship projects that was initiated by the late Governor John Nyagarama but it has not made a change since it was established, raising questions from the residents and leaders on the status of the project which has been receiving funds but no progress at all.
If completed, the project will be of great benefit not only to the youth but to the surrounding communities who are waiting for it to be functional so that they can be able to boost their income from the sporting activities that will be taking place at the facility.
Earlier on Governor Nyaribo had toured the Kiendege public land that was proposed for the construction of an airport and a business hub and urged the residents to support him complete the projects in the shortest time possible.
“With such projects, we can be able to develop as a county and I call upon all of you to support my government so that we can deliver to our people because service delivery is our core mandate. All that is needed is the development and that is the only way our presence as the county government can be felt,” the county boss said.
