Adhoc Committee Probing First Choice Recruitment Agency Tables its Recommendations

Uasin Gishu County Assembly Adhoc Committee probing First Choice recruitment and Consultancy Agency and the Finland Program tabled their final recommendation.

According to speaker Philip Muigei the Committee after interrogating various stakeholders mentioned in the two programs found out that they were not carried out according to the law.

“On the Finland issue, we have asked the executive and the employees who were involved or mentioned to step aside until an investigation is done to determine what happened. The program should be stopped until all the issues raised are discussed and sorted out,” said the Uasin Gishu County Assembly speaker.

Concerning the First Choice Recruitment and Consultancy Agency they have asked the Inspector general of Police to immediately compel the agency to release the documents that they have been holding for thousands of youths that had applied for the job.

“We have also urged the County government of Uasin Gishu to revoke its business permit until all investigations have been done and completed,” he added.

Langas MCA who is also the vice Chairman of Adhoc Committee Francis Muya said there were many irregularities in the two programs where Kenyans were swindled of a lot of money.
“It sad that the Finland program was not brought to the attention of the Minister of Education, the Cabinet, or even the County Assembly for discussion. This shows that some few individuals used the program to swindle money from innocent Kenyans. All those who were involved should face the full force of the law,” said the Langas Mca.

He noted that the County attorney should also resign for signing MOUs that led to the loss of money.

Concerning the First Choice matter Muya said over 8,000 youths who applied to go to Qatar for World Cup jobs lost over 320 million shillings.

“We have also recommended that the agency be compelled to release the documents belonging to the thousands of youths and the money lost should be refunded and if any officer of the police was mentioned should face the full force of the law,” he said.

Chairman of the Committee Olare/Ainabkoi MCA Gilbert Chepkonga said the County assembly will make sure that all recommendations have adhered to the latter.

“We are watching closely to ensure that all the recommendations are adhered to fully even if it means at some points to be on the streets for recommendations to be responded to the later we will do that,” he said.
