Sierra Leone: The Kenema District Football Association is on a robust field maintenance as part of its readiness for the commissioning of the Kenema City Field on Wednesday, 28th April, 2021.
It could be recalled that the contract from the fixation of the artificial turf at the Kenema City Field was awarded to Edel Grass by Federation International de Football Association (FIFA) for the Sierra Leone Football Association under the leadership of Madam Isha Johansen some years back hence putting a hold on all sporting activities on the field.
In order to beautify the field, the KDFA saw the need to maintenance the pavilion along with the field. To this end, the chairman of the FA through the help of the Mayor of Kenema, Thomas Baio, sought the help of PAVI FORT, a construction company in Kenema, to provide them with a compactor, roller and a grader to work along the periphery of the field, and a truck to load out the unwanted items in the field. The pavilion which painting had worn out is presently being painted in green, white and blue with oil paint. Carpentry works aimed at replacing the damaged and worn our Ceilings to give it a perfect face lift are also ongoing in the pavilion.
He expressed his thanks and appreciation to the mayor of the Kenema City Council for his open mind and priceless contribution to the successful completion of the project which he described as a “novelty to the people of Kenema.” He also applauded the president of the Sierra Leone Football Association for leading by example and for bringing to the people of Kenema the best artificial turf in West Africa.
