Sports Kenya denies UDA access to Kasarani & Nyayo stadiums for its final campaign rally

Sports Kenya has denied the William Ruto-led United Democratic Party (UDA) access to use the Kasarani and Nyayo National stadiums to hold its final campaign rally.

In a statement on Thursday addressed to UDA Secretary General Veronica Maina, the stadiums have already been booked and scheduled for use on August 5-7.

“We regret to inform you that due to peace concerts scheduled to take place at both Moi International Sports Centre-Kasarani and Nyayo National Stadium between 5th to 7th, the facility will not be available for your use,” read the statement signed by Pius Metto, the Sports Kenya Director General.

However, the Raila Odinga-led Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party on Tuesday, announced that they will be holding a final campaign “mega rally” at the Nyayo Stadium on August 6, the same day UDA was seeking to use the premise.
