He said that the government had already allocated Sh. 350million for modernization, expansion and establishment of other sports amenities within the stadium thus need for more land.

“There is a bit of encroachment beyond the current fence, with some of the individuals possessing allotment letters. This is a public utility and nobody should lay claim to it,” he said.
