Successful Member Trustee Election Marks a New Era for KMTC Staff Pension Scheme
The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) conducted its member trustee election at the KMTC Machakos campus on November 22, 2023. This three-day event commenced on November 20, 2023, featuring an introduction of aspirants and delegates and culminating in a democratic revolution with a fresh face taking the helm of leadership.
In a departure from the typically highly contested position, this election saw two contestants vying for the top spot.
KMTC Human Resource Manager Mrs. Lilian Kemboi, who doubles up as the Trust Secretary, encouraged delegates to vote wisely, choosing members whose manifestos properly aligned with members’ interests.
She emphasized, “Vote peacefully, and remember there must be a winner and a loser in any competition. If you win, remember these people you represent will want to feel they made the best decision in putting you in that position.”
A spirited campaign ensued among the nominated trustees, each presenting their manifestos. The delegates cast their votes, resulting in Winbert Wanyama securing victory.
Delegates had the opportunity to engage with Mr. Robert Rotich, the fund administrator at Minet Kenya Financial Services, who emphasized the importance of conducting background checks on saving plan choices.
The elected trustee assumes a critical role in the decision-making process of the College’s Staff Pension Scheme, representing diverse opinions and ideas. The democratic principles upheld in this election provide equal opportunities for eligible candidates to contribute to the Scheme’s governance.
As Mr. Wanyama assumes his new role, the KMTC Pension Scheme anticipates the infusion of diverse perspectives into its leadership structure.
Congratulations to Mr. Winbert Makenzie Wanyama on this well-deserved achievement.
