Counties in Kenya ,headquarters and Governors from 001 to 047

The 2010 Kenya Constitution is a major turning point of our country as it reconfigured the balance of power by transferring power and duties from the central government to 47 elected county governments.
In the Kenyan Constitution, chapter eleven, it says;
(1) In each county, there shall be a county government consisting of a county assembly and a county executive.

(2) To the degree that it is effective and practical to do so, each county government shall decentralize its functions and the provision of its services.
