First Choice Recruitment Agency Victims Want Investigations Fastrucked
The victims of the Eldoret-based First Choice Recruitment and Consultancy Agency have urged the National Government to probe into the matter and take legal action against their leader and get their money compensated.
This follows the claims from more than 4000 youths in Uasin Gishu County conned more than 200,000 Kenyan Shillings after they had been promised jobs abroad.
When the victims requested the money, the agency responded by telling them there was a delay with the visa
First Choice Recruitment and Consultancy Agency Managing Director, Judith Jepchirchir, first refuted the claims and that the rumors were stationed by specific individuals in order to ruin the agency’s name.
“We are calling for the arrest of the Jepchirchir after she failed to appear before the ad-hoc committee which was investigating the matter,”
In the first session of the committee, she appeared and presented papers that fall short of the expectations of the committee.
The agency was accused of promising youth world cup jobs in Qatar that did not come to materialize.
The Managing Director’s failure to appear before the committee has erupted wrath among the victims.
“Investigations should be done with immediate effect and those involved brought to book,” said Mike Yegon, a victim.
Yegon said the decision by the agency boss not to turn up to the committee’s request is “disrespecting’
“How can business and personal matters be very important to more than 4700 youths of Uasin Gishu,” added Yegon.
Lameck Kogo, a relative of a victim claimed he paid the money to secure a job abroad, he was arrested for complaining about the act and more so being not a direct victim.
He claimed that the lady had a close connection with the county government officials thus making it difficult to arrest her.
The agency was located in the City Plaza within the Eldoret Central Business District[CBD] for the last two years but relocated to unknown destination.
In November last year, the agency permanently closed its offices in Eldoret town.
