Jubilation as More KMTC Campuses Receive Vehicles

It was jubilation at the KMTC Headquarters in Nairobi during the commissioning of nine vehicles for various KMTC Campuses.

 “These vehicles will ensure students access their clinical training sites with ease, where they augment health service delivery to the local communities in the course of their training,” KMTC Board Director Mr. Fred Wamwaki, representing the Board Chair Amb. Zachary Muburi-Muita, said.

The nine vehicles, four double cabin utility vehicles, four buses and one ambulance will go to Thika, Kaptumo, Kuria, Iten, Kabarnet, Othaya, Busia, Webuye and Nairobi Campuses.

“The Board is committed to addressing resource gaps in the College to continuously enhance efficiency and subsequently quality of training,” Mr. Wamwaki added. In line with this, he reported, the Board has put in place plans to equip all Campuses with vehicles to strengthen transport system across the College.

He further indicated that the Board was keen on leveraging on technology in the College to ensure efficient use of resources available.

CEO Dr. Kelly Oluoch thanked the Board for enabling the College achieve its mandate. “These vehicles will go a long way in enabling KMTC maintain its quality of training considering 70 percent of the content is hands on,” he remarked adding “our students will now have easier access to their clinical areas and practicum sites.

Dr. Oluoch noted that in addition, the buses would enable students take part in co-curricular activities.

In the last eight months, the College has purchased 21 vehicles to go towards enhancing teaching and learning in various Campuses. As at now, the College fleet stands at 140 vehicles which includes one ambulance that will be key in student’s learning.

It is expected that in the next few months, the remaining Campuses will each receive a vehicle as KMTC moves to ensure all its Campuses across the country are fully equipped to the required standards.
