Promises by Siaya politicians that at least one new sub-County would be hived off in the next gazettement of administrative units on Thursday came to nought as Interior CS Kithure Kindiki announced 31 new administrative units.

Division of the mammoth Alego-Usonga Constituency into two has been at the centre of consultations with the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as well as Administration stakeholders [electoral area demarcations are often good indicators of administrative boundaries].

However Siaya received no mention today. Besides creating new sub-counties, Kindiki also gazetted new divisions, locations and sub-locations.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki has created 16 new sub-counties in different parts of the country.


In a special gazette notice, Kindiki noted that the new administrative units will help in efficient service delivery.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 14(1) of the National Government Coordination Act, 2013, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and National Administration establishes the following Administrative Units as service delivery co-ordination units,” Kindiki’s statement read in part.

The new sub-counties are Tarasaa, Tiriki East, Narok Amalo, Narok West, Kambu, Murera, Kerio Valley, Kabras East, and Kabras West.

Besides creating new sub-counties, Kindiki also gazetted new divisions, locations and sub-locations.

Jibana, Gede, Chakama, Chara, Garsen Central, Fafi, Mugwe, Kathangachini, Thagicu North, Kithungo, Kikumbulyu, Kavete, Kikoko, Gakawa, Kabaru, Mweiga, Endarasha, Wamagana, Siyoi and Uragate are among the gazetted divisions.

Others include Meibeki/ Karuna, Tembelio, Embobut, Endo, Lolminingai, Kabirirsang, Kapkoros, Kambiri, Namubila, Mageta, Nyamonye, Kabonyo Kanyagwal, Kanyada West, Kanyada Central, Ruma/ Kaksingiri East, Gwassi North, Kabondo East, Kojwach, Opapo and Kuja divisions.

Kindiki also gazetted Shakahola as a new sub-location in Kilifi County following the past cases of religious extremism involving Pastor Paul Mackenzie.

Its establishment is expected to help the government monitor activities and even ensure efficient service delivery at the grassroots level.
