In Summary

The fate of 93 students of the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) in Kakamega County hangs in the balance as they have not registered for the pre-internship examination.

The students from the department of clinical medicine were on Tuesday locked out of rehearsals for the exams set for Wednesday.

Some were in tears as they narrated the ordeal and frantically contacted their parents to inform them of what had happened.

POSSIBLE SUIT

The students said they were shocked to learn that they had not been issued with index numbers to enable them to register for the exams administered by the Clinical Officers Council (COC).

The college issued them with a letter indicating they had passed their final qualifying examination in July and were expected to write their COC tests.

The letter was signed by principal Dr Jeremiah Ngomo but did not bear the official college rubber stamp.
