Am sure Kisumu peeps are excited that Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has finally called off their bluff to reinstate the lakeside city as a host to some of the ongoing CECAFA senior Challenge Cup matches. The competition that started this past weekend, has seen the newly refurbished Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega play host to some of the opening matches.

Kisumu City residents have always been known to be lovers of football, and they always attend mathes hosted in the city stadium in their thousands.

And, Football Kenya Kenya Federation (FKF) has agreed to host the semi-finals on the Dec 14-15th at the city stadium. This is a welcome news indeed!

Nyong’o allayed fears of insecurity saying Kisumu was secure and will ensure adequate security measures were put in place.

The Governor said he has cancelled post-election demonstrations in the city and therefore there should be no worries of political tensions.
