President Uhuru Kenyatta was on Thursday the guest of Kisumu County together with his handshake partner Raila Odinga.

President Kenyatta was hosted at the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium where he also addressed residents.

The President promised to have the stadium upgraded by an independent contractor.

"The contractor has promised us that by April 2021 we'll be back here to officially open the renovated stadium. We've arranged to watch a match between Gor Mahia and FC Leopards on that day.

"I also saw the poor condition of the road as we were coming in and if this is to be a stadium of international standards then that road has to be upgraded as well," the President promised.
