H.E. Amb. Hussein Dado – Governor
County Government of Tana River

I welcome you to Tana River County’s official Website. Tana River is a rich County with a lot of potential in the Agricultural, Livestock, Fisheries and Tourism sectors. For many years the inhabitants have been faced with starvation, inadequate health facilities, disempowerment, insecurity and lack of information dissemination. My Government has set up measures to counter the effects of the above challenges by setting up a Department of Special Programmes which is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the people of Tana River County receive adequate food and clean water and the resources they need to ensure that Tana River Citizens lives are improved. We have a main health care facility at the County’s headquarters, an additional maternity wards within the County to counter the various cases of maternal and child mortality cases that were very common in the County. Apart from the maternity wards, we already have modern health care facilities in every Sub County. Towards this end the Government has allocated more than Ksh 300 million this financial year 2014/2015 to improve health facilities in the county. My Government will spend Ksh 143 million to construct staff houses and Ksh 63 million to build new dispensaries. Another Ksh 90 million would go towards the construction of maternity wings in various health facilities, while Ksh 20 million has already been spent to purchase drugs and other medical commodities.

In my Office I have the Department of Energy and ICT together with Public Service  and Civic Education. The Energy department main role is to ensure that the resources in the County are utilized efficiently to ensure that the energy potential is effectively utilized within the County in order to serve the people of Tana River and Kenyans at large. The Information Communications Technology is mandated to provide modern technology to the people of Tana River as well as to ensure up to date Information dissemination to its people as well as the citizens of Kenya and Investors.

The Public Service a and civic Education departments are mandated to ensure that the people at the grassroot level are updated on what is going on globally, nationally and locally in order for the them to be equipped with information that will guide them in decision making at all levels for their good.
