Youth urged to turn up in large numbers for NYS recruitment exercise 

The National Youth Service (NYS) coordinator in Molo sub-county, Julius Tanui has urged young people to always turn up in large numbers for the recruitment exercise affirming that the process is a free and fair affair.

He observed that most of the youth shy away from this exercise because of bribery and forgery allegations but he instead urged them to change their mindsets to enable them exploit opportunities offered by NYS to gain skills that will enable them to be self-reliant and boost the country’s economy.

Tanui who coordinated the exercise at Molo Stadium, acknowledged that the exercise ended successfully without any hitches as there were no cases of personification and falsification of documents or attempted bribery witnessed.

He said most candidates had the requirements and two men and a woman who had tattoos on their bodies were axed from the recruitment process.

Tanui further urged youths to maintain peaceful co-existence adding that it was important to join the service to acquire skills for self-employment.

The recruitment exercise will take place at Gilgil in Nakuru County on Thursday while the entire process will be concluded on Friday, February 9.

In attendance during the exercise on Wednesday was the area Assistant County Commissioner (ACC), Job William who commended the youth for the good turnout.

Forty-five youth among them 18 girls and 27 boys were selected to join NYS.
