Governor's Message

When we began this journey a decade ago, our key agenda was and remains to improve the livelihoods of our people. All our initiatives and programs have been pegged on that goal so as to achieve shared prosperity, enhanced delivery of vital services and improved management of public resources.

We have prioritized strengthening our 5 key pillars pegged on the Sustainable Development Goals; People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership, to improve and provide quality services to our people, boost the county’s economy, tackle climate change and achieve a more inclusive society for all. From annual 1 billion bursaries to every student from high schools to colleges and tertiary institutions to revival of Kisii University Campus at Keringet, we are committed to ensuring that every child gets an equal chance at securing their future.

Our county is vast and endowed with natural resources that provide endless opportunities for investment. With the setting up of Nasukuta Export Abattoir and industries coming up such as the Sebit Cement Plant, the county’s economy is set to absorb a number of unemployed youths; this will result in the demand for housing as well as hotel investment.

Through partnerships with various organizations and entities, we are on course to mobilize financial, technical and partnership support for initiatives to develop stronger institutions, enhance service delivery and increase citizen engagement in governance. We recently signed a partnership agreement with Saving Mothers Foundation and enhanced areas of partnership with DANIDA and many other partners in the health sector. As a result, our heath sector has seen rapid and positive change towards the provision of quality healthcare. We will continue to work closely with partners for shared prosperity.

While challenges remain, there are several bright spots, successes and good practices across the county. These achievements can be attributed to effective partnerships with development partners, government institutions, civil society and others.

We are in a state of progress and we continue to strive to provide solutions and exemplary leadership to our people.
