Kenyans interested in joining the military have been told to be on the lookout for fraudsters as the Ministry of Defence began enlisting 2,000 recruits on Monday.

Vice-Chief of Defence Forces Joseph Kasaon revealed that potential recruits had lost Sh52 million to fraudsters during recruitments since 2009.

“The recruitment that begins today is free of charge. Unsuccessful candidates will be informed of their shortcomings at the recruitment centres. Successful ones will also be given calling letters immediately after the exercise,” he said.

The month-long exercise will be conducted in 288 recruitment centres across the country.
