    It’s a good opportunity to kenyan youths but the most didcouraging factor is bribery and corruption.I remember in several occassions the public who have connections to the recruitment officers,always rush with good figures of legal tender just to secure a chance for their kids.The last time it was done in my constituency,some paid to a maximum of kshs.100000.I cant even waste my time of attending because automatically i will be turned down.

    It has always being announced that it would be free from corruption but the outcome is the opposite. Let the government act this time.
