Construction of Ngong stadium in Kajiado North Sub County will soon resume and will take one year to complete.
Deputy Governor Martin Moshisho said work will resume after a meeting between the contractor York Investment (E.A) Limited and the Kajiado County Government.
Governor Joseph ole Lenku had appointed a committee to look into the issue and ensure the stadium is completed on time.
The stadium which was a flagship project for former governor David Nkedianye was to cost Sh200 million. It stalled two years ago.
Alvin Kimani CECM Youth, Sports, Gender and Social Services had said the construction stadium had stopped due to consultancy issues.
The stadium will house a football pitch, swimming pools, athletics tracks and volleyball field among others.
In 2013 Jubilee manifestoes, Ngong stadium was among stadiums that were identified to be upgraded by the National government but the project later stalled.
Kajiado County lacks a modern stadium to host sports events; the completion of the stadium is expected to attract investors.
The stadium which will has a seating capacity of 8,000 people will be a boost to International athletes who train in the area since it has good weather condition for trainings.
