The Nairobi City County Government has inaugurated the Dandora Stadium, which was constructed at a cost of more than Ksh276 million after a six-year delay. The Dandora Sub County Stadium, which was commissioned by Nairobi County Governor, Mr Sakaja Johnson, will provide quality sporting facilities to more than one million city residents.

Speaking at the official opening, Mr Sakaja confirmed that, under his Lazima iWork mantra, the County Government is developing and commissioning similar projects across all sub-counties to nurture sports talents. He said the county government has also developed strategies to ensure the completion of similar projects, some dating back to the first Governor of Nairobi’s reign in 2010.

“The completion of Dandora Stadium is yet another proofpoint that under my watch, we must complete all development projects even as we break ground for new projects that will benefit Nairobi residents,” Mr Sakaja said. “I will steer clear of retrogressive politics that denies our people development projects based on who broke ground.”

He said these are Nairobi residents projects, and they will hopefully play a key role in nurturing this city’s next crop of sporting giants.

With the official opening, over 30 football teams will now have a chance to utilise the facility at affordable fees. This will guarantee youth engagement for monetising their talents and abstain from vices brought by idleness.

“The Dandora Stadium is not just a structure; it symbolises opportunity for our youth. We provide a platform for talent to flourish. By engaging in sports, our youth can avoid negative influences such, fostering a healthier and more productive society,” Mr Sakaja said.

“This stadium represents just the beginning of our vision for Nairobi as a city of opportunities. We are committed to delivering similar sports centres in all sub-counties, recognising the immense potential of sports, creative arts, and talents to transform lives,” Mr Sakaja said.

The Dandora Stadium will accommodate a substantial number of spectators, ensuring that it becomes a hub for sporting events and community gatherings.
