NAIROBI, March 23 (NNN-KBC) — The Kenyan government will recruit another batch of 10,000 police constables in the next two weeks, says National Police Service Commission Chairman Johstone Kavuludi.
Plans for the exercise, which will take place across the country on April 4, have been finalized, he said here Tuesday.
The planned recruitment will take place barely a month after 10,000 police recruits were injected into the national police service upon successful completion of their training.
Kavuludi said the planned second recruitment exercise was in the spirit of enhancing police numbers in the country to handle increasing security challenges.
The last police recruitment exercise was conducted across the country in February 2015 after the High Court had nullified the initial exercise because of allegations of graft and nepotism.
