The stadium’s refurbishment works were budgeted at around K1.5 billion and include the procurement of a turf in the 2017/18 National Budget.

Mutharika, during the ground-breaking ceremony of the five-star Sogecoa Golden Peacock Hotel and Business Park in Blantyre, said as the soccer fraternity awaits the construction of a new stadium in the city, rehabilitation works on the historical facility would go on.

“We will be constructing a new stadium at Njamba Freedom Park, apart from the rehabilitation works at Kamuzu Stadium.

“Let me assure soccer fans that the artificial turf that is key to the works will arrive in the county next month,” Mutharika said.

Kamuzu Stadium was closed due to the risk it posed to people’s lives. The turf had also outlived its lifespan; hence, requiring a replacement.
