The KMTC Board of Directors on 18th February, 2020 visited the proposed Cherangany Campus to assess development progress and give recommendations on the way forward.
The visit was a follow up of another in May 2019, where the Board met with the area MP Hon. Joshua Kuttuny and other local leaders to discuss prospects of establishing a new Campus in the Constituency.
Board Chairman Prof. Kaloki reiterated the Board’s readiness to support and work with Hon. Kuttuny and the CDF committee. “We will work together to get the Campus up and running as part of our continued efforts to expand training opportunities for more qualified Kenyans,” the Chairman said.
He gave a list of requirements and assured that once these were in place, the Campus would be given the go ahead by the KMTC Board to start admitting students.
