Work Stalls on Kenya's Ruring'u Stadium

By Joseph Kanyi

Work at Ruring'u stadium has stalled following a dispute between Kenya Power and the contractor over a power line that has cut through the facility just two months after the project was launched by the President.

The dispute emerged after Kenya Power told the contractor to pay Sh1.4 million before it can relocate the power line, something that the contractor says was not factored in the initial quotation.

The contractor, Sam Mwaniki, wondered how the way leave for a major power line could have been allowed through a property that was meant for sports and other activities in the first place.
