Police in Eldoret have set free a group of job seekers who were on Christmas day arrested at the Eldoret Sports club after they were purported to have disrupted President William Ruto’s meeting.



The Young men and women raised their placards while Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii was introducing other government Dignitaries present at the prayer and thanksgiving Christmas meeting.



Led by Collins Kiptoo and Kelvin Kipng’etich the job seekers raised placards urging President Ruto to intervene in the First Choice Recruitment and consultancy agency that is purported to have taken millions of shillings from the youth who were supposed to have been connected to job opportunities in Qatar and other countries.



“we went there as early as 7:00 am we had our placards with us ,with a simple message , urging the president to intervene in our situation, we were defrauded of our money by First Choice recruitment agency where we paid monies between 40,000 and 400,000 thousand, the president being our Chief Hustler we urge him to intervene ,we want our money back, “Said Collins



We promise to continue to fight for what is rightfully ours. We are saddened by our political leaders present in the event and  who did not highlight  our plight despite our outcry, he further added.



Kelvin Kipg’etich notes they had exhausted all avenues to find justice and that they had to seek the president’s attention,

“As Millions celebrate Christmas today , we have nothing to celebrate including our parents,we were defrauded our hard earned money,no leader within our county is willing to help us get justice and that is the reason we are  seeking the presidents Intervention,”Said Kelvin



The Job seekers through the Centre against Torture through Kimutai Kirui have petitioned the Uasin Gishu County Assembly, The National Assembly and the Senate to investigate the recruitment agency.



The Uasin Gishu County assembly has already constituted an ad hoc committee to begin its first seating early January into the First Choice Recruitment and Consultancy petition



The First Choice Recruitment and Consultancy manager Judy Chepchirchir has insisted that her organization is legitimate and has continued to operate within the law, with some of the complainants already having been refunded their money.
