The UoK fraternity is proud of Atina Kemunto (second front row... from right) for making it to the list of 13 nurses selected to work in Britain following the UK-Kenya bilateral Agreement. Atina Kemunto was a member of the UoK BSc Nursing Class of 2016.

In the bilateral agreement, United Kingdom offered 20,000 slots for Kenyan nurses to serve in the UK. Atina made it from a batch of more than 3,000 nurses who applied. Health CS Mutahi Kagwe flagged off the first 13 nurses on 27th June 2022.

Speaking during the farewell ceremony, the Health Cabinet Secretary noted that those that will be leaving to work as healthcare workers in the UK were more than nurses; they were Kenya’s ambassadors to Britain.

The flagging off ceremony was graced by UK Kenya High Commissioner, Janet Marriot, Kenya Medical Training College Chairperson Amb. Zachary Mburi - Muita, Ministry of Health's Principal Secretary, Susan Mochache, Director General, Dr. Patrick Amoth, Director Nursing Services, Dr Judith Awinja, Nursing Council of Kenya's Registrar/CEO Edna Tallam among other dignitaries, parents and invited guests.
