President Uhuru Kenyatta to commission the new Ulinzi Sports Complex

President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to launch the multi-purpose Ulinzi Sports Complex at the Lang’ata Barracks on Wednesday, a complex that will host multiple sports arenas for Kenya Defence Forces sports teams.

The facility, which broke work on October 28, 2020, is planned to be completely operational by the end of the year, with an indoor arena capable of hosting basketball, volleyball, and badminton, as well as an Olympic-size swimming pool and other facilities.

The football pitch and athletics track, which will be held at the main stadium, are now being constructed. The two facilities are ready to go, and the systems were put to the test last Sunday during a dry run of the major event, which will take place on Wednesday.

Gen. Robert Kibochi, the Chief of the Defence Forces, Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, and numerous top army commanders are among those due to attend the venue’s official launch. Gen Kibochi proposed the idea of building a modern sports center as part of the Defense Strategic Vision of “Sharpening the Arrowhead,” which aims to improve KDF Mission Readiness.

The stadium’s track will also serve as a training ground for Kenya Defence Forces athletes, as well as a potential venue for their yearly championships, which were formerly held at Nyayo or Kasarani Stadia.

Several exhibition races will be observed by President Kenyatta on Wednesday, and Ulinzi will play FKF PL defending champions Tusker FC in a friendly match to officially inaugurate the stadium.
