Tony becomes the first JKUAT student to hold the position after being elected by fellow students from various universities through the delegates system of elections.

When it comes to academic and extracurricular activities, Tony has had a successful spell and his latest fate is no mean achievement.

Tony welcomed the responsibilities bestowed upon him and plans to serve the medical students in the country with his passionate leadership skills. He stated that he plans to build a vast social network while also making the association independent, financially stable, all-inclusive, and improving the association’s online visibility.

“I have a vision of taking MSAKE to the next level because I believe a strong medical students’ association can make a huge difference towards solving the societal health care needs as well as provide an opportunity for the association’s members to be better health care professionals with worldwide recognition,” he said.

Over the years, Tony has built his portfolio immensely and was listed as number 7 in the list of the Top 100 most influential students in JKUAT 2022. He has also served as a student rep in the School of Medicine and has been an active member of the Jomo Kenyatta University Students’ Medical Association(JKUSMA) and the JKUAT Medical Research Club (JKUMREC)

According to Tony, his presidency should serve as an inspiration to other students who are eyeing the position having vied twice before and lost both elections.

“I didn’t lose hope because I knew what I wanted as a leader. As I begin my service to the medical students, I won’t just meet their expectations, but I will also exceed them.”

The Medical Students’ Association of Kenya (MSAKE) is a non-profit umbrella organization that represents all Kenyan medical students whose mandate is the growth of academic and occupational opportunities for medical students, as well as health advocacy. The Medical Students’ Association is also a full member of the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA), and was founded in 2007.

The executive board of the organization is managed by medical students who are in charge of standing committees that deal with mental health, reproductive health, public health rights and peace, research exchange, and professional exchange. These committees are instrumental to both medical students and society and that is why they require a lot of support from the universities.
