Defence CS Aden Duale has promised to look into Kenya Defence Force recruitment process.
Duale says the process has been marred with corruption.
Speaking during a TV interview, Duale said they will not allow lack of integrity in KDF.
“When I was before Parliament, I heard severally how the KDF recruitment has been marred with corruption and many other things.
“I want to assure the people of Kenya that we are going to re-look the recruitment criteria,” he said.
He said many have been taken to court for recruiting people illegally into the KDF and they want to deal with those cases first.
“KDF is very serious when it comes to integrity, ethics and discipline. There are a number of cases that have been concluded and others pending.
“We have to clear all of them because we won’t allow corruption to thrive in KDF,” he said.
Recruitment into uniformed forces in Kenya has been synonymous with corrupt dealings,nepotism and favoritism.
