President Paul Kagame of Rwanda on Saturday night officially opened the Kigali Arena, a multipurpose complex whose magnificence has amazed many Kenyans.

The arena, which hosts ten thousand people will host NBA Africa finals next year. The facility is multi-purpose for indoor games, but it will also host meetings, conferences, exhibitions and concerts.

“I thank the construction company-Summar who built this Kigali Arena in a record 6-months period,” said Kagame during the launch.

Kenyans were amazed by the information that the arena was built in just six months and ended up questioning the Jubilee government about their promise of building stadia.

“Rwanda built the arena in a record of 6 months! No inflation of costs, no corruption. Where are the Jubilee stadia?” questioned Omondi on Twitter.

“Last evening, President Paul Kagame inaugurated the Kigali Arena a state-of-the-art sports and events facility with a capacity to host 10,000 spectators. These are the kind of presidents we need in Kenya,”said Jason Sagini.

Addressing Deputy President William Ruto, one twitter user asked the Jubilee government not to serve empty promises.

“DP Ruto, come see what serious governments are doing in developing sports not like the useless government you serve in that gives empty promises to its people,” said Okudo on Twitter.

“Here in Kenya we are still waiting for the 5 or 7 stadium DP Ruto promised us,”said Oriwo

Sports Reporter Carol Radull also questioned why the government is taking too long to renovate Nyayo Stadium.

“It took 6 months to build Kigali Arena and it has a capacity of 10,000, meanwhile we’ve been renovating Nyayo Stadium for 2 years,” said Carol.
