The Agricultural Society Of Kenya (ASK) in collaboration with the County Government Of Kisumu is in the process of developing the Kisumu Showground to enable its use to go on throughout the year and not restricted to use only when the ASK event is on in the month of July each year.

The Master Planning Committee is chaired by Kisumu County Minister for Agriculture, Irrigation,
Livestock and Fisheries Gilchrist Owuor. Other ministries involved in this endeavour are Tourism, Culture and Sports; Lands; Finance; Roads and the City.

In attendance at the meeting was the ASK leadership led by the CEO Batram Muthoka, the physical planner David Zinny, and the architect Brian.

Some of the brand new development and investment projects envisaged in the master plan include infrastructure improvement within the showground, demonstration zones, exposition hall and conference centre, a  stadium, business incubation centre and a hotel.

The grounds will be a green social haven for the residents of Kisumu and beyond.

The aim of the project will fill the niche for accelerated sustainable resource, economic and social development both regionally and nationally.

In light of the upcoming Africities event set for November 2021, the County is excited about this partnership.

This is the 2nd ASK restructured development after Jamhuri Showground in Nairobi.
