History[edit]

Guitry Department was created in 2009 as a second-level subdivision via a split-off from Divo Department.[3] At its creation, it was part of Sud-Bandama Region.

In 2011, districts were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast. At the same time, regions were reorganised and became second-level subdivisions and all departments were converted into third-level subdivisions. At this time, Guitry Department became part of Lôh-Djiboua Region in Gôh-Djiboua District.
