The IMCK management team is doing and excellent job directing all aspects of the IMCK operations during very difficult financial times and periods of conflict and pandemic. The team meets on a monthly basis to review the health of all departments and define the challenges that need to be addressed. Representatives from the management team are also on the IMCK Board of Directors which meets on an annual basis.
Dr. Serge Makolo (Director) attended medical school in Lubumbashi and after graduation in 2005 served as the Director of Bilomba Hospital and Health Zone near Kananga. He later joined the medical staff at the Good Shepherd Hospital and in 2017 was elected Director of IMCK. Dr. Makolo oversees all departments at IMCK, teaches at ITM and ISTM schools, and still works as an attending physician to many patients. He is married to Berth Tshilomba and they have five children.
Kastin Katawa Ntumba (Administrator) obtained his degree in Business Management at the Université du Cepromad in Kananga and has worked as the Director of Personnel at the Bibanga Hospital and as Administrator at Mutoto Hospital. His experience in finance, personnel, and supply chain management is put to go use in his role at IMCK.
IMCK Board of Directors
IMCK is operated under the direction of a 3-way partnership:
- The Congo Presbyterian Community (CPC)
- The Mennonite Community of Congo (CMCO)
- The Presbyterian Church, USA (PCUSA)
The Board of Directors is composed of four members from each of these three entities plus the Director of IMCK, the legal representative of IMCK and the Medical Inspector of the West Kasai Province.
The Board meets twice a year and designates an interim subcommittee which can make time-critical decisions between full Board meetings. The Board also designates standing committees – such as Finance and Personnel – to more efficiently address certain functional areas.
