The stadium was one of five others chosen to host the African Nations Championship (CHAN) games but Kenya was at the weekend stripped of her rights to manage the event, which will start in January. African football chiefs said Kenya was not prepared for the 16-nation showpiece because the stadiums are incomplete.
