RE: OFFICIAL OPENING OF JAMHURI SPORTS COMPLEX
In August 2020, the Ministry kicked off the process of transforming the Jamhuri Sports Ground along Ngong Road into an ultra-modern sports complex, in adherence to a directive by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The development of Jamhuri Park into a State-Of-the-Art sports complex with a variety of amenities is another golden feather in H.E. the President’s hat in the growth of sports and talent development in the country.
The Sports Complex, which sits on a 79-acre piece of land, is a complete eco-system with food courts, modern ablution blocks, picnic sites, jogging tracks, three football pitches and two rugby fields, making it fit for footballers, rugby players, and athletes. It also doubles up as a recreational centre for Kenyans who are looking for a calm and serene place to unwind, away from the bustles of the city.
The facility is among the new sports infrastructure that have been delivered within 12 months, and that the government had planned to nurture talent and promote sporting activities across the country.
The President’s decision to allow access to the Sports Complex is a major win for Kenyans.
“As a country we are proud of our sporting prowess. We have seen our sports heroes like Michael Olunga, Collins Injera, Oscar Ouma, Vincent Onyala, Eliud Kipchoge, Mercy Cherono, Faith Kipyegon among others bring honour to our motherland through their exemplary performances at the international stage.
Through the construction of such sports facilities we seek to nurture even more talents as we make sports a mainstream income-earning venture for our youth,” said CS Amina Mohamed.
