52 million shillings has been lost to fraudsters on the pretext they can guarantee recruitment for interested Kenyans in the disciplined forces.
Vice-Chief of Defence Forces Joseph Kasaon is cautioning potential recruits against engaging in bribery, clarifying recruitment is conducted free of charge.
Kasaon issued the warning while launching a month long recruitment drive targeting 2,000 recruits countrywide.
Kenya Defence Forces KDF recruiting teams consisting of the Kenya Army, Kenya Air Force and Kenya Navy will for the next one month be visiting 288 centres countrywide seeking to enlist service personnel, constabularies and tradesmen and women, cadets and specialist officers.
All persons presenting themselves for recruitment with falsified documents or those caught engaging in any corrupt activity will be arrested and prosecuted.
Kasaon clarified that candidates will know their fate immediately after the exercise.
He warned that any person purporting to recruit or issue an alleged calling letter away from a recruitment centre will be doing so fraudulently.
Members of the public are advised to report any suspicious activity in the course of the exercise which ends on Tuesday October 18, 2016.
