President William Ruto has pledged 65 million Kenyan Shillings to equip the newly established Kangema Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) campus in Murang’a.

Addressing the public during the official opening of the campus, Ruto declared, “We are committed to ensuring that all Kenyans have access to quality healthcare. This remains the government’s priority as we roll out the Universal Health Coverage across the country.”

The funds are earmarked for upgrading the college to meet the required standards before admitting new students. President Ruto also announced a further allocation of 100 million Kenyan Shillings to expand the Kangema Sub-county Hospital, emphasizing the pivotal role it will play as a training ground for students enrolled in the new KMTC branch.

“We need additional health workers from nurses, health record officials, clinical officers, pharmacists, and all other professionals, hence why we are expanding our KMTC colleges across Kenya,” Ruto stated.

The college, constructed at a cost of 100 million Kenyan Shillings, occupies 11 acres of land donated by the Murang’a County government and is set to welcome its inaugural cohort of students in September. Health CS Susan Nakhumicha reiterated the government’s call for Kenyans to embrace the Social Health Insurance Fund (SHIF), emphasizing its potential to reform the healthcare sector in the country.
