I salute the people of Garissa and the Nation of Kenya. And welcome you to Garissa County. ‘The City Under the Sun’. The county has unique features, challenges and opportunities which we vowed to take up and tackle.
Jim Rohn Said “The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”
The county system of governance has given us an opportunity to serve the people at the local level and I must say, it is a humbling experience.
Government formation enabled me realize the great human resource the county has, I call on all who expressed desire to serve the county in various capacities but were unsuccessful to join us in the development path.
Health Services pause a great challenge in Garissa but through partnerships we seek to focus more on preventive health: community health education, nutrition, sanitation, hygiene and disease control. With the little available resources we shall staff, improve and equip our health facilities and take all measures to make them accessible
Our education sector has great potential with a well structured education system, institutions and professional staff. Our school going children are about half the population whom we intend to impart upon the right Knowledge, Skills, Values and Attitudes as they are our future and we owe it to them.
Sports has for a long time been viewed as a hobby and a part time engagement but not so any longer. Garissa County boasts of many residents who have transformed their lives through sports and many Olympians have hailed from the county. We have prioritized sports development and sports facilities are up coming to engage and develop talent especially amongst the youth to reap the attendant benefits.
The environment hosts and feeds us, we endeavor to optimally but sustainably utilize the natural resources for own consumption and business; the rich flora and fauna, wood and forests, stone and hardcore for road and building construction, wind energy, topography scenic beauty, waterfalls and ways, cultural sites gives a boost to our tourism.
