Political analyst Prof Mutahi Ngunyi has received backlash after putting out a recruitment post for his Fort Hall agency.

In the recruitment post, Prof Ngunyi noted that his agency is seeking to recruit Junior Research Fellows, and listed the requirements and the salary scale which did not augur well with a section of Kenyans.

"We (Fort Hall) are recruiting Junior Research Fellows. Masters Degree from a European or American University is preferred. Written and spoken French is an added advantage. No training required as I myself will train you. The salary range is between $ 1000 - $1500," Ngunyi posted.

Reacting to the post, a section of netizens faulted Mutahi Ngunyi for limiting the application to Masters Graduates from universities in America and Europe.

Others felt that the salary scale was not in line with the requirements listed.

Explaining why the prof should consider hiring Kenyan graduates, some netizens claimed that they are the ones who do research projects for students in universities abroad.

Here are some of the reactions:
