Recent KDF recruitments have been marred with bribery allegations.

On September 18, 2021, three KDF soldiers were charged with soliciting for bribes. The three appeared before a court-martial at Kahawa Garrison where they were charged with obtaining money from Kenyans in order to influence their recruitment.

The soldiers were captain Joshua Muange Mulang’a of Kenya Navy (KN), Retired Redeployed Non-Commissioned Officer 3 Henry Wafula of Defence Forces Technical College (DEFTEC) and Sergeant Robert Kipkemoi of Recruits Training School (RTS).

Capt. Mulang’a allegedly obtained Sh50,000 on February 11, 2021 from two recruits promising to successfully influence their recruitment. He pleaded not giliuty tpo the charges.
