Man Arrested For Allegedly Selling Fake KDF Recruitment Letters

    The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) on Saturday arrested a middle-aged man accused of conning unsuspecting parents millions of shillings by selling fake Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) recruitment letters.

    According to a statement by EACC, the man who was arrested in Sagana on Thursday was allegedly selling the letters for amounts ranging between Sh400,000 and Sh500,000.

    In a particular case, the suspect demanded Ksh450,000 from one parent who paid Ksh300,000 on September 11, 2023 and was issued the fake letter. 

    “In one case, the suspect had asked for Sh450,000 from the complainant who paid Sh300,000 on September 11, 2023, and was issued with the fake recruitment letter,” reads EACC statement issued on Saturday.

    The complainant was asked to pay the balance on September 15, 2023, to be “cleared to sign all remaining admission forms,” in readiness for “direct recruitment” to the Forces.

    The police, however, caught up with the suspect in Nyeri and arrested him as he was about to con two victims who were ready to pay Ksh500,000 each.
