In Kenya, whenever the General Election is nearing, it is a common norm for individuals to review their achievements and failures of the sitting government. But it is now over eight years since the Jubilee government took office, and it is time to give marks and credit.

Stakeholders in the sports sectors are yet to see what Jubilee government promised – to build five new stadiums in different counties nationwide- when the administration was sworn in March 2013 and the number rose to nine and then eleven by same administration years later.

The promised regional stadiums are found in Elgeyo Marakwet, Kiambu, Marsabit, Nyeri, Tharaka Nithi and Uasin Gishu counties.

The other promised stadiums are five new national sports arena’s in Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru, Eldoret and Garissa.

The country is approaching another election and the government is yet fulfil those promises made to the people of Kenya.

The world-class promised stadiums by Kenyan Government cannot be traced and the existing one’s have turned to mini stadium which cannot host international football.

After promising Kenyans world class stadiums in 2017. In an interview last year, the Deputy President of Kenya Dr, William Samoe Ruto said the stadiums could not be built because the money set aside for the project was directed to other government sponsored projects.

In a statement he said: “You make it look like I was to get the money from my pocket to build the stadiums, this was a Jubilee administration pledge.”

The Deputy President dismissed the claims that they lied to Kenyans saying, they have delivered on other projects like electricity, housing, roads and rail nad Kenyans should not only asked about stadiums.

In 2017, Ruto who had admitted that they had not delivered on the five stadiums they pledged in 2013, said plans were underway to construct eleven world-class stadiums and will be completed in 2022.

In 2022 already and not a single Kenyan have seen a world-class stadium has been built in Kenya apart from the renovated Kasarani stadiums which is below FIFA and Confedration of Africa Football [CAF] standards.

Kenya failed to host the 2020 Africa Nations Championship tournament due to inability to provide four stadiums and the tournament was moved to Cameroon.
