• Eighty-six trainees were admitted at Kanyakine Kenya Medical Training College to undertake community health and development courses
• Kathuri urged investors to establish hostels in the area
Imenti South MP Kathuri Murungi yesterday urged Governor Kiraitu Murungi's administration to create jobs for KMTC graduates.
He spoke at Kanyakine Kenya Medical Training College in his constituency during the first admission of 86 trainees to undertake community health and development courses in the newly established institution.
Kathuri said community health and development students will be of great help in achieving President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four agenda, especially Universal Health Care, is achieved.
“I want to thank President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government for giving us the institution. This is a great milestone. We will put all available resources to finish other relevant infrastructure facilities," he said.
In July, Governor Kiraitu and four MPs pushed for the enrolment of trainees in three Meru KMTC branches that are under construction.
The governor and MPs Kathuri, John Paul Mwirigi (Igembe South), Kubai Kiringo (Igembe Central) and John Mutunga (Tigania West) asked trainees to enrol before March 2020 at Kanyakine, Miathene and Nyambene KMTC branches in Meru.
Kathuri urged investors to establish hostels and eateries within the college to serve the growing area.
"Kanyakine market residents have to renovate their commercial buildings to give our students affordable and comfortable accommodation. More investors should put in their money in residential buildings as the institution is destined for greatness,” he said.
