Mwingi, 22nd Feb 2018: Mwingi central’s Kenya Defense Force recruitment took place today at Mwingi town of Kitui county where majority of youths showed up to try their luck.
According to Alfred Olenewankas, Senior recruiting officer, the major challenge that led to dismissal of many today was weight.
“Majority of candidates from Mwingi central, Waita ,Kiomo and Mumbuni locations were underweight thus leading to their disqualification,” pointed out
Calling letters were issued to only 5 canditates who qualified out of 250 youths who turned up hoping to secure a job. The lucky ones,who were all men, were three from Mwingi central,one from Waita and another from kiomo divisions.
Among the ladies who showed up in search of greener pastures ,none made it.
“In last years recruitment exercise , one lady was selected from mwingi central ,so this year another centre is required to produce another. This is according to headquarter’s statistics.” clarified Olenewankas
Speaking to one Muthui from Waita who got the calling letter,he expressed his joy and said that he had secured the job of his dreams and that he will do his best to serve the nation.
Unlike in many centres, form four certificates produced by these youngsters were genuine. None was fake and there were no much irregularities witnessed.
The recruits are expected to report to Recruit training college in Eldoret on 3rd March 2018.
