According to Kenya Defence Forces Spokesperson Col Paul Njuguna, the suspects may have obtained the letters from conmen saying they only recognised the letters issued at the recruiting centres which were gazzetted.

"Any other recruitment that took place any other place rather than recruiting centres was definitely a con job.It is unfortunately some Kenyans were conned as you can see," the KDF Spokesman noted.

The suspects will be arraigned in court on Monday.

Last year about 70 youth were also arrested after they turned up at Eldoret Moi Barracks Recruit Training School with fake calling letters.

"We had warned Kenyans to be on the lookout because many people out there con jobless youths whenever such opportunities arise," Njuguna noted at the time.

They were charged with two counts of forgery, possessing a forged calling letter and presenting the fake document at the recruit school.
