Roba Mbogai the new Kitui County Commissioner has sent a message to the youths ahead of the National Police Service Recruitment scheduled to be held by the end of March 2022 across Kitui County.
Mbogai called upon all the youths to come out in large numbers and grab the opportunities that will be available during the recruitment exercise. The youths were also called on to be patient and hopeful that they will get the slots and also abstain from activities that can make them be disqualified.
Speaking during a forum held by the National police service commission (NPSC) dubbed ‘pre-recruitment clinic’ the county commissioner told the local youths aiming to join the police force, ” I encourage you to turn up in large numbers for the recruitment and if by any chance you don’t get a slot to join the police training don’t give up because there are other avenues that can make you a successful individual in life. Don’t involve yourselves in immoral activities like taking drugs and other harmful substances that can make you disqualified; instead, use your time to do more exercise like playing football and taking evening runs.”
The National police service commission team which was led by their Director of Human Resources, Okinda Obor held the forum taking
the youths through the objectives of the pre-recruitment clinic, including qualities of a police officer, the work of NPSC, the Dos and Don’ts during the police recruitment among others.
“The objectives of the pre-recruitment clinics are to sensitize the public and create awareness on the nature of police work, attract the right people for the recruitment exercise, address unemployment, reach and sensitize citizens, and to get feedback from the public on previous police recruitment exercises to improve on future exercises,” said Obor.
The NPSC Legal advisor Brenda Opiyo while addressing the youths, emphasized the requirements of the recruitment of a police constable.
“An applicant must be a Kenyan citizen, holder of a Kenyan National Identity Card, attained a minimum grade of D+ in the KCSE examination, be aged between 18 -28 years old, meet the requirements of chapter six of the constitution and be physically and be mentally fit” the NPSC legal advisor stated.
