Uhuru commissions construction of new stadium but still, Kenyans are unimpressed

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday commissioned the construction of a sports stadium but some Kenyans seem far from impressed by the development.

Accompanied by his deputy William Ruto and Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario, the president announced the construction of Marsabit Stadium via his official social media pages.

Earlier the president had visited the venue of construction while on a campaign trail in Marsabit.

The Head of State did not however, issue out details of the project including how much time the contractors require to complete the facility.

The development understandably elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans online.

The Jubilee administration has been at pains to explain the slow progress in constructing five state-of-the-art stadiums it promised Kenyans in 2013.

The lack of available modern sports facilities led to the  Confederation of African Football (Caf) warning the country it risks losing the hosting rights for the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (Chan).
