Construction of the Kenya Marsabit Stadium is resumed

Posted on : Tuesday, 27th October 2020

Construction of the Marsabit Stadium has begun after almost three years of stalling. According to the County Development Implementation Coordinating Committee (CDICC) which toured the site, the work of the two contractors, Arid Lands and Benisa Limited, on the first phase of the project is amazing.

The former was hired by the county government to build the VIP Pavilion at a cost of USD 0.7 Million, of which USD 0.4 million had already been paid. However, the firm was met with challenges when the National Building Authority (NCA) challenged the integrity of the work. On the other hand, Benisa limited which is a construction company of buildings (property development) roads, and dams (Waterworks) was employed by Sports Kenya on behalf of the national Government to construct public pavilions alongside the introduction of the core collection of universal standards at a contract cost of USD 2.7 Million.

Sports Kenya Director Gabriel Komora said that the firm, which has since advanced USD 1 Million, is also responsible for developing a certified track of athletics and for the construction of electrical and mechanical equipment.

The flagship project was commissioned by President Kenyatta by mid 2017. The County Planning Implementation Coordinating Committee (CDICC) reported that the project was well behind schedule and that a special sub-committee with a fortnight schedule of meetings to track its progress had been set up and instructed the contractors to complete the project by December of this year.

County Commissioner Paul Rotich called for a joint commitment to the execution of the project to ensure that it is finished by the end of the next year as ordered by the President. According to Arch. Odhiambo George, a consultant with Mruttu Salmann Associates who accompanied the CDICC during the site visit, has disclosed that the plant, which has so far provided 270 qualified and unskilled positions, is estimated to cost USD 1180 Million.
