GOOD NEWS as RUTO orders repeat of police recruitment due to TRIBALISM/ CORRUPTION


It is good news for thousands of Kenyan youth who turned up for the recruitment into the police force last Monday but were not taken due to corruption, nepotism and tribalism which dogged the exercise in many recruitment centres around the country.

This is after Deputy President William Ruto ordered a repeat of the recruitment exercise in areas where corruption was the order of the day.

Speaking on Saturday during the burial of former Lugari MP, Cyrus Jirongo’s mother in Kakamega, Ruto asked the National Police Service Commission (NPSC), under the chairmanship of Johnston Kavuludi, and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to carry out thorough investigations into corruption and nepotism claims during the recruitment and repeat the exercise where necessary.

The Deputy President also ordered the commission to expose the police officers who broke the law during the exercise and arrest them.

“I want to direct the Mr. Kavuludi to arrest all the officers involved in corrupt activities that led to the recruitment of unqualified recruits into the police force,” said Ruto.

In some areas, it was reported that some people parted with as much as sh300, 000 to get jobs for their sons and daughters while in some areas like Laisamis, only youths from one community of Rendille, were enlisted into the police force.
