First Choice Recruitment Scam: Victims Threaten To Resume Demos If Ksh.1B Is Not Refunded

Eldoret residents who were victims of the First Choice recruitment agency’s fake job racket have threatened to take to the streets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday if the Senate’s recommendations are not implemented within a month.

Kimutai Kirui, who has been at the forefront of the fight for the issue, spoke to the media on Thursday and said that the Senate Committee’s recommendations should be followed or they will take to the streets.

“Let her close shop…She doesn’t have a license from the National Employment Authority… Let the woman not operate for five years, as well as her deputy director, and let her refund money to the five thousand youths she duped. She has not been airlifting students out of the country…,” he said.

Kimutai slammed Chepchirchir and her company, calling it a “con game and a pyramid scheme” involving businessmen and politicians.

His sentiments were shared by other residents who had gathered in solidarity to plan the demonstrations.

“Our lives are over; you know how much this company cost us. People are suffering. We are not going to fear anyone. The only language we understand is our money. We need our money back.”

Residents have demanded justice and have petitioned CS BORE to remove Judy from office due to her incompetence.

“There’s a recommendation for her arrest…we are waiting for the conclusion of the police investigation so she can be held accountable,” Kimutai said.

“William Samoei Rutto, we hear you saying ‘mambo ni matatu kwa cartels wote,’ why don’t you deal with cartels of Uasin Gishu? We want Judith to refund, Judith to be arrested, her company to close shop, ” Kelvin Koech, a leader among the afflicted group, said.

“We have been seeking a refund for two years now…. We lost our money; we lost time to demonstrate; our children have no jobs. We want our money back,” Seli Yego, an afflicted parent, said.

More than 200 youths in Uasin Gishu County accused the recruitment agency in Eldoret of promising them World Cup jobs in Qatar that never materialised.

The agitated youths stormed the county commissioner’s office in Eldoret on September 19, 2022, asking relevant State agencies to help them regain their hard-earned money.
