Seeking forces personnel who can pass an arduous physical exam that includes having no criminal record and meeting certain height requirements is not easy but it does exist in this article! Men must measure 1.6 meters or more tall while women need to weigh at least 50 kilograms more than males do before they will consider him/her as part of their team- which means most people won’t qualify without some serious weight loss programs first…
The government recruits young adults to join the army. Applicants must not exceed 26 years of age, and they also cannot be pregnant at time of recruitment for GSO Cadets or General Duty Recruits positions! Female candidates need to meet certain criteria too; female soldiers can’t have children themselves but would like other females in their families who do qualify as military personnel (wife/partner). Specialty officers should all fall between 30-39 with chaplains being over 39 if you’re religious about it – imams get special treatment though because we know how important your role is so please don’t be offended when we request an exemption from this rule just
“Candidates must be medically fit and their skin must be healthy devoid of large or deep scars and tattoos. Specialist Officers and Tradesmen should have a minimum of two years practising experience in their field of specialisation from the date of registration with the relevant regulatory body in Kenya,” the KDF announcement read.

“Bribery and other acts of corruption are against the law and anyone suspected of being culpable of such, will be arrested and prosecuted in a court of law. KDF recruitment is absolutely FREE TO ALL,” KDF said.
