Nyandarua County to start medical training college
KMTC Registrar Mrs. Mary Kanyotu led a team to meet Nyandarua County Governor H.E. Daniel Waithaka Mwangi on 19th March 2014 for an inspection tour of a proposed site for a medical training college.

Five acres have been set aside for the proposed MTC. A number of facilities have already been identified for immediate use. They include an administration block, skills lab, classrooms, library, play ground, computer lab and two hostel blocks for students, which can accommodate 60, at the J. M. Kariuki Hospital.

The hospital, the team observed, is very clean and water is readily available.

The governor says that the county lacks health workers. "We are under-represented in your intake. We will strictly follow the advice you give us to establish our own college."
"We have benchmarked with Bungoma MTC and seen where we can start," he said. "The County wants to start in a small way before expanding to a fully fledged MTC in the near future."

There is good will from the community leaders, according to three members of the county assembly who accompanied the inspection team.

Mrs. Kanyotu reiterated KMTC's commitment to work with the counties to promote the health of Kenyans by quality training of health professionals.
