Kisii Gov­er­nor told to speed up Gusii Sta­dium re­pairs

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

Over 500 Sha­bana FC sup­port­ers have pe­ti­tioned Kisii County Gov­er­nor James Og­wae to speed up ren­o­va­tions at Gusii Sta­dium to al­low the home side to use the fa­cil­ity.

The sup­port­ers through their chair­man Sammy Nyakundi said Sha­bana were no longer en­joy­ing home sup­port in Kisii since the Gusii Sta­dium was closed for ren­o­va­tion early this year.

Nyakundi said Sha­bana have be­come no­mads shut­tling be­tween Keri­cho Green sta­dium, Afraha and Sony Awendo grounds and this was af­fect­ing their per­for­mance.

Nyakundi told gov­er­nor Og­wae to treat foot­ball as any other de­vel­op­ment project by en­sur­ing the gates to Gusii Sta­dium are opened to the home side. This is the only way the club can en­joy home sup­port while play­ing their su­per league matches,” he said.

He told the gov­er­nor to mo­bi­lize county re­sources and en­sure the Gusii Sta­dium was ready for use by Sha­bana FC be­fore the end of the year.
