President Kenyatta to reopen Nyayo Stadium tomorrow


President Uhuru Kenyatta will open the Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi, three years since it was closed for renovations.

An invite from Sports ministry to sports federation indicates the event will begin by 9:30am.

The stadium was among the five facilities earmarked to host the 2018 African Nations Championship(CHAN) in January 2018 but Kenya lost the hosting rights due to lack of venues readiness.

This left the Confederation of African Football(CAF) with no choice but to srip Kenya of the hosting rights in December 2017.

Once reopened, the facility will host the Nairobi leg of World Athletics Continental Tour dubbed Kip Keino Classic on October 3, with local football league matches expected to be next in line
