The Kenya Defence Forces nationwide recruitment drive began yesterday with a warning against bribes and other malpractices to influence the outcome.
Vice Chief of the Defence Forces Lt Gen Francis Ogolla said the exercise is free of charge and told both serving military officials and public not to seek, offer or receive bribes.
The second top most Military boss said 21 military officials are facing court martial for being involved in malpractices linked to past recruitments.
According to Lt. Gen Ogolla they intend to take on 18 to 20 per cent of women of 4,000 recruits to cater for gender policy.
The exercise will run for the next two weeks until the end of the month.
KDF announced it will be recruiting General Service Officers (GSO), Cadets (Regular), General Service Officer (GSO) Cadets, (Graduate degree holders), Specialist Officers, General Duty Recruits, Tradesmen/women and Defence Forces Constables.
Prospective candidates must be Kenyan citizens with no dual citizenship, no criminal record, and must possess a valid national identity card.
The fight against Corruption is a collective responsibility by all government institutions. This will go a long way in deterring corruption because the menace will be dealt with from within those institutions.
