Board Chairman Prof. Philip Kaloki and CEO Prof. Michael Kiptoo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Kericho County Governor, H.E. Stanley Kiptis on 15th April, 2019, on behalf of the College and County Government respectively.

The MoU covers KMTC Kabarnet, which is currently the only campus in Baringo County, and any other campuses that might be started in the County in future.
