Ruto's Cabinet Hit With First Scandal as a Top CS is Linked to Multimillion Fake Jobs Deal

President William Ruto's cabinet has been hit with a first scandal after one of the cabinet secretaries was implicated in a fake / dubious multimillion shillings youths jobs deal where hundreds of young job seekers were unsuspectingly robbed.

The scandal involves a fake recruitment agency in Eldoret town which had promised a total of two thousand jobs for Kenyan youths in Canada, Qatar and Poland. After collecting money from youths to facilitate their travel and other arrangements, the agency went silent.

The cabinet secretary whose name has been withheld, a top business man in Eldoret town and a senior politician have now linked to the scandal. As revealed by victims, the cabinet secretary attended the launch of the recruitment program last year and was one of the mobilizers who encouraged the youths to pay up the fees needed to secure the jobs.

"We have every reason to believe they know something about the scam that has fleeced us millions," said Pauline Ambaka , a victim of the scam.

Youths affected by the scam have been holding peaceful demonstrations in Eldoret Town but they have been stopped by the police. As they continue to call on the cabinet secretary to come forward and shed light on what he knows about the scam, they have vowed to continue with the demonstrations.
