Bungoma, Bungoma County: The Bungoma Medical Training College on Friday was inaugurated to be a recognized constituent of the KMTC. 

Residents of Bungoma County have been urged to give priority to health matters in pursuit to development in region since ‘a healthy nation is a wealthy nation’.

Speaking at the inauguration of Kenya Medical Training Centre Bungoma branch the former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Livestock Mr. Kenneth Lusaka has emphasized the need for health sector to be empowered in the region so as to put an end to unhealthy living.

Lusaka has also called upon politicians and aspirants to various seats in the forthcoming general elections to exercise constructive politics which is issue based and not to attack counterparts vying for the same seats.

“We need to outgrow personal attacks and give a chance to all aspirants to express their manifesto for the electorates to choose their suitable candidate,” said Lusaka. 

The inauguration ceremony was presided over by the Director KMTC Dr. Olang’o Onudi who urged the students to work hard in their studies for their better future.

Speaking during inauguration ceremony of the college, the chief guest Dr. Olang’o Onudi said it’s good that Bungoma has two medical colleges and promised to work hand in hand with the management to make sure all courses given to other medical colleges are introduced to the college so that students can acquire all skills required in the medical field.

The assistant minister in the ministry of internal security who is also the Member of Parliament for Kanduyi Hon. Khang’ati urged women to vie for other seats rather than women representative seat because a third of members in the coming parliament will be made up of women.

The Assistant Minister for internal Security Mr. Alfred Khangati called upon electorates to consider good leadership in the forthcoming elections and to shun tribalism and corrupt leadership that has been the main undoing of the County’s development agenda.

“Kanduyi Constituency has built enough health facilities for the MTC students to work in after graduation,” said Khangati.

He called upon female aspirants in the region to also vie for the other positions and not just the women representative seat saying that it would help equalize the 1/3 gender law in the legislator. 

The principal of the college Ms. Elizabeth Nehondo congratulated all stakeholders who placed their efforts in ensuring establishment of the college that everyone is proud of now and promised to do the best in ensuring students get quality education at the end of their learning and become better medical personnel.

Ms. Nehondo said the college is one and half years old with a population of 437 students with 4 classrooms so, she urged the government to bring electricity, more teachers, more classes, built for them assembly hall, a well equipped library and more field for games.

She also thanked parents for the support they have given the college since the beginning of the college in paying school fees on time which made operation of the college smoothly.
