Officially opening the stadium, Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa, said the sports structure signifies the continued efforts of government to develop sports infrastructure.


Nankhumwa also added that the development is evidence of the efficient use of funds by the Kasungu Municipal Council.


"There have been cases where money for development projects has been misused. However, this stadium is evidence that Kasungu Municipal Council has used money appropriately,” said Nankhumwa.


 Mayor for Kasungu Municipality Ireen Katola said having a stadium has been the wish of the people of Kasungu for a long time.


"The stadium will benefit us a lot. Our young people will be kept busy here by engaging in various sports activities. Above all, it will be a source of revenue for the council," Katola said.


Built under Local Development Fund (LDF) with support from Kfw, the stadium has cost K446 million and when fully completed it will have a capacity of 6,000 people.
