A man posing as a KDF recruiting officer in Eldoret has been arrested over claims that he manipulated area residents.
He is alleged to have asked residents for money in order for them to join the army even after the recruitment exercise ended last month.
One of those who was conned explained how the fake KDF officer asked for 400,000 shillings for him to join the Moi baracks in Eldoret.
According to police in Eldoret, the man was found in possession of 726,000 shillings that he had collected from other people.
Police have now asked residents to be careful and avoid being conned of their money.
