Kenya National Youth Service Recruitment

Over 200 recruits who had been recruited into the NYS last year were kicked out this year after it was discovered they had presented fake admission documents.

They were already undergoing training at the NYS college in Gilgil

Up to 5000 youths were selected during the nationwide National Youth Service recruitment exercise which took place during the month of December 2010.

When the recruits reported for training this year, it was discovered that about 218 of them were there illegally. They were recruited using fake documents which contained forged signatures.

It is alleged that the said recruits paid up to Shs 14 million in bribes to corrupt NYS officials as each parted with between 50 - 70k  to be recruited. They were then issued fake admission letters forged at Nairobi's Luthuli avenue.

The Kenya National Youth Service's mandate is to train the youth in technical & vocational skills in order to facilitate their engagement later in the national economy. NYS recruits also acquire paramilitary training and are sometimes absorbed into the police, paramilitary and defence forces.

Kenya Police Service Recruitment 2011

Recruitment of officers into the Administration Police and Kenya Police Services had been put on hold late 2009.

This was to pave way for police reforms and for the Government to review the police training program.

The temporary ban was lifted around August 2010.

It was then announced that the Police would to take up  around 7000 new recruits but it didn't happen.

With Police recruitment not taking place last year, I reckon it might happen early this year.

This prediction can be supported by the fact that the year has started with Kenya Wildlife Service conducting its Rangers recruitment exercise.

An anonymous reader also left a comment stating that police recruitment is expected to take place early this year.
