Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) recently issued a stern warning to its students, urging them not to post videos of themselves twerking while wearing their school uniforms on the popular social media platform TikTok. The college administration has emphasized that such content is not only offensive but also detrimental to the institution’s reputation. As a consequence, students who fail to comply with this directive could face a one-year suspension.
The concern arose when some KMTC students were found producing and sharing these inappropriate videos on TikTok, tarnishing the college’s brand and causing harm to its image. Consequently, the administration has taken decisive measures to safeguard the institution’s reputation and uphold its values.
One KMTC official expressed concern over the potential repercussions, stating, “Imagine if KMTC had to publicly disapprove of such videos. In any case, there is no justification for creating and sharing such content. We encourage our students to act responsibly and consider the impact of their actions on themselves and the college.”
KMTC Students Expelled Over Fake Certificates
In another concerning development, the Ministry of Health recently discovered a significant scandal involving falsified academic documents among KMTC students. Numerous students from various campuses across the country were expelled after it was revealed that they possessed fraudulent Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) credentials.
According to reports, these students were found to have presented forged academic papers after almost seven months into their first term, which they had entered in September of the previous year. The scale of the issue is alarming, with a KMTC source revealing that 15 out of 50 first-year students in Garissa, and an additional five students at the Port Reitz site in Mombasa, were involved in this academic dishonesty.
This scandal has raised serious concerns about the integrity of academic qualifications at KMTC, and the Ministry of Health is working closely with the college to address the situation. Measures are being taken to prevent such incidents in the future and to maintain the credibility of the institution’s academic standards.
In conclusion, KMTC has taken a proactive approach to discourage students from posting inappropriate content on social media platforms like TikTok, safeguarding the college’s reputation and values. Additionally, the issue of fake academic certificates is being addressed with the utmost seriousness, aiming to ensure the credibility of the educational qualifications earned at KMTC.
