From the toxicological tests most of the men tested positive for Marijuana. As female candidates tested positive for pregnancies. He said that from the arm recruitment Standards no lady should be taken when pregnancies because a woman is not allowed to train while pregnant.

The excercise left only less than 16 recruitees securing a chance to join the service from the entire Isiolo County.
