"Sisi Ndiyo Tulipiga Kura" Night Drama as North Rift Youths Confront Police During KFS Recruitment

The Kenya Forest Service (KFS) in conjunction with the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) carried out recruitment exercise of game wadens across all the 47 counties in the country. KFS is aiming to recruit over 2000 youth to the service.

The recruitment exercise went on smoothly in most parts of the country and unlike in other recruitments, cases of rampant bribery were not reported this time round.

However, drama unfolded in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet after the exercise ran into the wee hours of the night with hundreds of the youth still on the queue hoping to qualify for the jobs.

At around 10 PM, the head officers in charge of the exercise in the county tried to halt the exercise claiming that it was already late.

The youth in the queue who were becoming impatient confronted the officers demanding the exercise to go on. They went ahead to throw chants at the officers claiming that they are the ones who voted for the current government.

"The exercise must move on. We can't wait here from morning and then you tell us to go home without the answers. We are the ones who voted," stated one of the impatient youth.

The KFS had no other option than running the exercise deep in the night.
