    Kalonzo then turned his attention to Tseikuru residents urging them to invest in hostels in order to reap from the boom that would visit them once the institution was opened.

    “I call upon the KMTC board to hasten the construction so that by end of next year, the first intake is conducted,” stated the former VP Kalonzo.

    The construction of the institution got a huge boost from area MP Paul Nzengu who pledged to Sh25 million from the county development fund.

    “I urge residents to support this game-changing facility and own it. bring children here, for this will automatically improve the lives of our community. On my side, I would immediately channel Sh25 million to start construction of classrooms,” Nzengu announced.

    The MP further stated that the college came as a blessing to the locals.

    On his part, Kaloki revealed that the institution in the area was the brainchild of a consultative meeting between himself and the wiper party leader.

    He also added that the locals had played a major role by donating the land on which the institution would be built.

    “We will invent better and improved health services such as taking health care to locals’ doorsteps, through an outreach program and home-based health care,”  Kaloki added.
