This would help develop talents among the youth in the County.
These stadiums are synonymous with football competitions that have produced top-of-the-range players at inter-county , village, and ward level.
The Minister was speaking at Gilgil Stadium in Gilgil. She officiated the Gilgil Ward football tournament organized by area MCA Jane Ngugi.
She subsequently commissioned the dressing rooms of professional players and provided sports kits to specific teams of men and women in football, volleyball and rugby.
The building has changing rooms for men and women, washrooms and the office of a caretaker.
The Nakuru County Government is negotiating a proper road drainage system with Kenya ‘s National Highways Authority to prevent the stadium from being flooded by runoff water flowing along the highways.
Gilgil Ward Member of County Assembly, Jane Ngugi thanked Nakuru County Government for their contribution to promoting county sports.
Mr. Ouma George, Chairman of the Gilgil Sports Council, applauded the renovation of the stadium. He notes that it will go a long way in fostering sport and ultimately creating jobs.
Hopefully,the liveliness of Gilgil’s sporting activities will make Gilgil sub-county a fully-fledged branch of the Kenya Football Federation. Hence disassociating it from Naivasha.
