The Kenya Medical Training College is engaging with Kajiado county government with a view to establishing a national training outlet within the county.

Governor Joseph Lenku on behalf of Imbirrikani group ranch community and Prof. Philip Kaloki, who is the chair of KMTC board of management are in engagement with the aim of taking over the former HIV/Aids multimillion facility to be turned into a medical training centre.

On Saturday, Kaloki met with Lenku and top officials of Imbirrikani group ranch, where he proposed to them the intention of KMTC to establish its 66th branch in the county.

Kaloki said if the community will give them the multimillion facility once managed by an American philanthropist, Anne Lori when she was running the largest HIV/Aids outreach in East and Central Africa, they will turn it into a national medical training college, and a hospital for the community.

During the meeting, Kaloki assured Lenku and the group ranch committee that should the college be given the facility, KMTC will not only use it for training but also set up a hospital that will enhance the training of students in addition to offering health services to members of the community.

“Thirty per cent of all admission slots in the campus will be reserved for qualified applicants from the county,” Kaloki said.

In addition, Kaloki said, expansion of Loitokitok KMTC campus to the facility would provide employment opportunities for youth in the county.

“Given the Imbirrikani facility, “We will open a KMTC Annex in Loitokitok in September 2019,” added the KMTC board chair.

Chicago-based Lori was forced to close down the facility after donors failed to support the multimillion project that was employing doctors in their hundreds at the outreach hospital.

Imbirrikani group ranch chairman, Daniel Metui, requested for more engagement with KMTC, while Jackson Lekume, the custodian of the facility was told to seek the comments of Lori, who is the United States of America, while Lenku was tasked with informing the media of the progress.

The former Imbirrikani HIV/Aids outreach facility sat of 10 acres of land and has all the required hospital building facilities except equipment which could have been taken for safety elsewhere.
It also has modern solar panels and batteries that can run electric power equipment in the facility round the clock.

Currently, the Big Life Foundation, a wildlife conservancy program led by another American, Richard Bonham, is using a section of the facility as offices.

“We have given some of the houses to the Big Life Foundation so that they can also provide security to the multimillion facility. We did not want vandals to take advantage of the unprotected site,” said Lekume.

Kaloki was accompanied by KMTC board vice chairman, Eng. David Muthoga, Mithamo Muchiri, Dr. Evans Amukoye, Nancy Muchire, John Angira and David Odeng.
