An Exchange of Letters for Maintenance of the Moi International Sport Center was signed during H.E. President Hu Jintao’s visit to Kenya in April 2006. Sheng-Li Engineering Construction Company Ltd. ((胜利油田胜建集团) was the contractor.

The stadium was closed in January 2010 for renovation works. On June 2, 2012, the Moi International Sports Centre reopened.
