KMTC Bomet takes up the challenge to keep Kenya green by planting trees
KMTC Bomet has planted over 1000 trees in a drive launched by Bomet East Member of Parliament Hon. Beatrice Kones. The aim of the drive is to increase tree cover in the County.
Speaking when she launched the tree planting drive, Hon. Kones urged all present to plant trees to ensure that the country achieved the recommended forest cover of 10 percent. “If we don’t take care of the environment, it will be very hard on us,” she cautioned.
Hon. Kones also commended the students, who come from all parts of the country, for co-existing peacefully.
Deputy Director (Academic Affairs) Mrs. Nancy Michire, representing the Director, commended the men in Bomet for not only electing a woman to the position of Governor but also for according Ms. Sarah Koech, Principal Bomet Campus, immense support, which had enabled the campus to grow from 50 students at inception to the current 700.
She encouraged the students to work hard both in their academics and in conservation of the environment.
Ms. Koech thanked Hon. Kones for using KMTC as the launch pad for the initiative. She noted that the campus is a brainchild of Hon. Kones and through her continued support, the campus has continued to grow in leaps and bounds.
She thanked National Bank (Bomet Branch), KMTC Technical Team, Bomet East Constituency Development Fund and Kaborso Secondary School for partnering with the campus by donating trees and other items for the occasion.
