One of the recruit died during the ongoing police recruitment exercise in Kwale County today afternoon.
The 23-year old reportedly collapsed and died after completing a mandatory run for those seeking to be recruited into the service.
Investigations commenced immediately into the cause of his demise. This recruitment began today in different locations across the country as the National Police Service seeks to add 10,000 more personnel.
Many complained after they were turned away for failing to meet physical requirements such as height and dental composition.
Earlier in the day, a man was arraigned in a Nairobi Court for defrauding Sh18,000 from different people while pretending to be in a position to help them succeed in the police recruitment.
