Hundreds of Machakos County residents in Kangundo, on Saturday, lined up the streets to welcome Deputy President William Ruto who was in the area.
Ruto, who was in a development tour in the county, opened Kenya Medical Training College, which he said was in line with the government objective for the attainment of the Universal Health Coverage in the country by 2022.
“To anchor the Government’s desire for adequate, accessible, effective and targeted medical care, we are enhancing the training of health professionals by building and equipping new medical colleges; this would see us churn out 50,000 graduates by 2022 from the current 10,000 a year” he stated.
Regarding the recently released Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report, Ruto asked the residents to ignore politician noises.
“They will take us nowhere. They will do us nothing. The noises will end and Kenya will move forward” he said.
He added that he was ready to take the referendum route to pass the proposals contained in the BBI report.
