      MACHAKOS NEW STADIUM OPENING

The stadium in Machakos (which has been known as Jomo Kenyatta Stadium for 40 years) was a patch of dry land four and half weeks ago.
The Government of Machakos bid to host CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup and promised to have the stadium ready in six weeks. Amazingly, within four weeks, terraces, toilets, two beautiful changing rooms for competing teams, CCTVs, public toilets and an amazing pitch-considered the best in the country, was ready.

The construction of a stadium from dry dust and grass to a ten thousand (10,000) capacity world class sports centre has never been done any faster in the African continent. Governor Mutua supervised the construction all the way to ensure international quality standards were met. The stadium’s terraces are all rooted.

In addition to the stadium, Governor Mutua’s government is also in the final touches of the most beautiful public park in Africa (Machakos People’s Park). The 35-Acre park which sits by Maruba Dam in Machakos Town, also boasts Africa’s first and only field Amphitheater. The park will be open to the public on December 5, 2013.

On top of these initiatives that also include the New Machakos City, Governor Mutua’s Government has also initiated several development projects for Machakos County.

• 40 tractors are already ploughing farms for free together with free seed in subsidized fertilizer in a Food Security Subsidy programme.

• 2 million chicks are being given to the youth in the county.

• From 1st December, 2013, grants (not loans) will be given. Youth-Ksh 15m; Women Ksh20m; the disabled Ksh 20m and Ksh. 20M to the elderly as a social welfare empowerment Programme.

• 60 roads in 40 wards will from December 10,2013 start to be repaired and maintained.

• From January 2014, Ksh. 464M will be used to upgrade 40 Healthcare Centers to Community Hospital standards each with a ward, x-rays lab, mini theatre and maternity.

• 70 ambulances-one per location will be distributed from December 20th this year.

• 140 police and specialized vehicles will be launched either late December 2013 or early January 2014. They are in transit in the open seas.

• MachaWood (Machakos Entertainment Centre for Film, Music, Media and the Arts) wil open its doors early January 2014.

• Machakos Forensics and Research Centre will start operating January 15, 2014.

• 800 floodlights (mulika mwizi) will be installed in the county between January and March 2014.

• 500 CCTVs will be installed in the county by end of January 2014.

• Water drilling rigs and excavators are on order and will be on the ground from February 2014 to dig 700 boreholes, 500 dams and water pans together with installation of 300 water tanks in Machakos County.

Surely, Machakos is the place to be.

Thank you and God bless You.
