President hands over title deed for Taita Taveta MTC
President Uhuru Kenyatta has officially given a title deed for Taita Taveta MTC in Taita Taveta County to KMTC.

Board Chairman Prof Phillip Kaloki received the title deed from the President on July 17th 2014 at a ceremony to commission a number of projects for the county.

The College will open a new chapter in the lives of residents of Taita - Taveta County, said the President. Said he: "The college will provide an opportunity for the local community to train and upon graduation, offer health care services to the people of Taita Taveta."

The President said his Deputy William Ruto would commission the College upon completion of the ongoing construction works.
The college buildings under construction are a pointer to a top-of-the-range medical college upon completion.

Local residents expressed gratitude to the Government for initiating and implementing the MTC and other development projects which they said are a dream come true.

Leaders from the area said since independence all past Governments had never done what is being witnessed currently in the County. Led by Governor John Mruttu and local MPs led by Taveta Member of Parliament Dr. Naomi Shaban, the residents said they are fed up with empty rhetoric that helps nobody.

The county is set to open another college at Voi District Hospital.

Nakuru MTC takes the lead in branding


Nakuru MTC is the best branded MTC. All buildings in the college have been painted using the College corporate colours to enhance the college's image. The college has so far spent Kshs 1 million in the branding and is working on labeling of
buildings as well as putting up signages, says the Principal Mr Peter Tum.

Mr Tum attributes the new look of the College to the improved perfornmance of the College: "Perhaps it is for this reason that the performance of students at Nakuru has gone up from 76 to 98. In addition to this, staff attitude at Nakuru MTC has seen tremendous improvement."

The college has also witnessed an unprecedented growth in the number of students from 930 in October 2010 to the current population of 1300. During this period, the college has also added 7 new classrooms to the college's infrastructure. The college has 7 programs; Nursing, Clinical Medicine, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Environmental Health Sciences, Pharmacy,
Physiotherapy and Nutrition.

On a recent tour of the college, the Board Chairman lauded Nakuru MTC for an impressive job.
