The Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) have kicked off an extensive nationwide recruitment campaign with the aim of filling vacancies for Officer Cadets, Recruits, and Defense Forces Constabularies positions.
Vice Chief of Defence, Jonah Mwangi, highlighted the KDF’s unwavering commitment to conducting a recruitment process that is transparent, accountable, and devoid of any fraudulent activities.
In a recent media briefing, Vice Chief Mwangi emphasized the significance of upholding integrity within the recruitment exercise. He urged the public to remain vigilant against any attempts to manipulate the recruitment process and warned against actions that deviate from the core principles of the KDF.
To ensure the recruitment process’s integrity and protect it from fraudulent practices, the KDF has implemented comprehensive oversight measures.
These measures include the deployment of intelligence operatives and anti-corruption officers. Moreover, media platforms are being utilized to raise awareness about the ongoing recruitment and to caution citizens against falling prey to fraudulent activities.
Vice Chief Mwangi encouraged citizens to actively participate in safeguarding the recruitment process by reporting any suspicious activities they come across. This can be done by reaching out to the recruitment teams or through designated mobile phone numbers.
In a bid to reach a wider audience, the KDF has strategically established 374 recruitment centers across all 47 counties. These centers have been designated as interview venues for potential candidates, reflecting the KDF’s commitment to inclusivity and fairness in the selection process.
The Ministry of Defense (MOD) has been proactive in disseminating vital information and warnings to counter recruitment-related fraud. Through the MOD, the KDF is diligently working to ensure that only the most qualified candidates are selected.
The emphasis remains on maintaining the highest standards of integrity throughout the entire recruitment process.
