Hundreds of youth turned up at the Makutano Stadium of West Pokot County for the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) recruitment exercise that has been going on for four days in the county.
According to the senior recruitment officer, Lt-Col Solomon Wandegwa, this is the largest turnout that has been registered in the county.
Young women aged between 18 and 25 were disappointed after being told that the KDF was not recruiting women.
The exercise was conducted in the three divisions of Sook, Kapenguria and Kong’elai.
