Tana River,KENYA:Politics in Tana river have in the past few months experienced a paradigm shift  with incumbent governor Hussein Dado’s vocal critics becoming his active supporters.
  Governor Hussein Dado  who was elected on a wiper party ticket in 2013 was long at loggerheads with several legislators in the county who had been on parties in the then Jubilee coalition  who included Bura Mp Ali Wario,Garsen MP Ibrahim Sane.
 Wario had severally disproved of Dado’s manner of running the affairs in  the Tana river county government  and had also accused Dado of corruption.
 As of last year 3 aspirants had already declared their interest to unseat governor Hussein Dado and they included the Garsen Mp Ibrahim Sane, the Deputy governor Jire Siyati,the former  Finance and Planning Executive committee member Jillo Algi, who   had resigned in 2015 after falling out with governor Dado  to vie for the gubernatorial seat and the county speaker Abdi Nuh.
Weak support and the G8 movement
The only legislator who seemed supportive of Dado in Tana River had been  the Galole MP Hassan Dukicha who was elected on a UDF party ticket in 2013.
