Office of the Governor

Governor's Welcome Message

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, dis-empowerment, 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
