The Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) has warned of a fake military scam where individuals are posing as KDF officials and conducting a fake recruitment drive, targeting Kenyans who desire to join the force.

As a result, KDF has issued a notice to clarify that it has not conducted any recruitment drive in 2020 with the last one held in December 2019.

“This is to notify members of the public that KDF is not recruiting at the moment.

“Any persons/entity purporting to be recruiting on behalf of KDF or claiming to have influence over recruitment processes is a fraudster,” the notice reads.

Through the phone number +254743509400, KDF urged any individual who had fallen prey to the scam to report the criminals masquerading as KDF or Ministry officials to the nearest Police Station, Military Establishment or the Military Police.

“When KDF commences the recruitment exercise, members of the public wil be notified through the Ministry of Interior website, KDF social media sites and media stations,” the notice added.
