Residents of Tana River and Kilifi Counties have been assured of robust service delivery by their respective Governors who took oath of office yesterday.

In Tana River, Governor Dhadho Gadhae Godhana assured residents that he will implement a performance management system that will see them get services swiftly and efficiently.

Godhana said he will closely partner with the national government and stakeholders to achieve his goals of developing the county through attracting investors.

“We will implement the robust performance management system where performance targets are clearly spelt out and anyone following short of the target will have no option but to work hard and deliver or be sacked. We will continue to engage the national government and our partners to support our county development agenda,” he said.

Senator Danson Buya Mungatana said that he will use his position at the senate to push for legislation that will not only help Tana River County but all counties in Kenya to strengthen devolution.

“We want to assure you that we shall work together to give service delivery to your benefit and all leaders will work as one,” he said.

He said that previous senators from the County had nothing to show hence the lack of the much needed support to strengthen service delivery to residents.

In Kilifi, Governor Gideon Maitha Mung’aro who is starting his term said that he will streamline revenue collection in order to enable the County to have enough funds for implementation of projects.

Mung’aro said that the revenue systems will be digitized to minimize loss of money occasioned through manual revenue collection.

“We will invest in digitized revenue collection that will net in more funds for development and this will go a long way in sealing corruption loopholes,” he added.

He added that his emphasis will be drawn to economic recovery in the tourism and agricultural sectors as well as industrialization.

His predecessor Governor Amason Kingi Jeffah assured Mung’aro of his much needed support even as he retired from county politics and shifted to national politics.

“It reaches a moment where the fastest relay runner hands over the baton to the next runner and the handing over is a process hence there will be need for us to midwife this process so that Governor Gideon Mung’aro can perform his duties, I will be there to help you when needed,” he said.
