Devolution Powering Our Transformation

Mandera County continued to register positive progress anchored on achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) despite challenges and the devastating effects of climate change, which saw prolonged dry spells followed by heavy rains and flooding.Floods displaced families, washed away crops and farming infrastructure and cut off roads. The resilience of our people was put to the test afresh. Interventions by the County and National Governments helped us cope with the disasters, but our people deserve to be cushioned more.Through the will of the almighty God, we overcame the prolonged litigation period, which slowed our work and delayed the appointment of a full Cabinet and Chief Officers. Today, we have a full Cabinet and expanded roles for the accounting officers

Prof Adams Oloo

It is a lifetime experience. I’ve never been here before. It’s a historic visit to the frontline of the country. Governor Roba has turned around Mandera and I give him credit despite the climate challenges and security issues. I am very impressed with the great development I have witnessed and the cooperation between the county and the national government. It is completely contrary to the perception of many Kenyans who have never visited Mandera County. My appeal is to the people of Mandera to help the government in securing of our border as it takes both them and the government to establish a safer count

Building Bridges Initiative Vice-Chairman

Lawi Imathiu

When I first visited the Mandera in the mid-1960s during the Shifta War under the umbrella of the National Council of Churches Kenya (NCCK), Mandera was just a small village devoid of any development. Today, I am impressed at the level of development initiated by the county government. With its vast land, Mandera can be turned into an agricultural hub if proper measures are put in place. The country is an interesting destination toi visit

Former Methodist Church Presiding Bishop

Saitoti Torome

We appreciate the pace of development in Mandera and the progress made in the border securitization programme. Thank you Office of the Governor for your warm reception

Principal Secretary Ministry of Defence

Amb Dr Stephen Karau

I first visited Mandera in 1979 as a military doctor to pick a referral patient and ten years later, travelled back to the county to pick family members of the then dethroned Somalia president Siad Barre at Elwak. The two instances gave me a sneak peek of the county. However my recent visit as the Building Bridges Initiative CEO gave me an opportunity to interact with the residents and leaders. Contrary to belief, Mandera is secure, with vibrant wananchi and huge strides in development. My message to all Kenyans is that this is a stable and secure country

Building Bridges to Unity Taskforce CEO

Major (Rtd) John Seii

I was last in Mandera 53 years ago. Mandera town was a hamlet. All we could see then were thickets, wild animals and sparse population. For the six months that I stayed in the area we used to draw water from River Daua using donkeys, but the changes I have witnessed are tremendous,. My visit this year is a complete contrast to that of a half a century ago. The people are very friendly and what has amazed me most is the resilience of the people to develop their county despite threats posed by insecurity. Devolution has played a major role in the development of the region.

H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta

In Mandera, child mortality has halved due to the County’s investment in medical facilities. We owe that success, first and foremost, to the diligence of our people; and to the leaders here, and their predecessors. I extend our warmest thanks to you all for this success so far

President, Republic Of Kenya

H.E Margaret Kenyatta

Radicalization of the youth is a legitimate and significant concern among all peace loving Kenyans. I am optimistic that radicalization, extremism and terrorism can be defeated through development, resolution of inequities and ensuring basic services and human rights for all. “As part of these efforts, I note that the Mandera County Referral Hospital has been refurbished from its formerly dilapidated state. It has emerged from the ashes into a very good hospital facility.

First Lady, Republic Of Kenya

The transformation witnessed in Mandera County is a true testimony of the success of devolution. I have been very much Impressed during my tour
