There was drama in Kisumu during the ongoing Kenya Defense Force recruitment exercise after a man was arrested for attempted bribery. 

The man was arrested after he attempted to bribe the KDF officials while he had written the amount on his foot. 

The man had written under his foot the amount of money he was willing to part with — Ksh300 — so as to secure recruitment into the forces.

The incident occurred during the incident at Kombewa in Seme Sub-County, Kisumu County.

He was arrested alongside his mother, who had accompanied him to the recruitment exercise.

The suspects are being held at a Seme police post, awaiting further legal action.

Over the years, cases bribing officers to earn recruitment spots have been on the rise.

However, the defense ministry has introduced stringent measures to ensure the process is transparent.
