The National Youth Service used the electoral agency’s Biometric Voter Registration kits to enlist recruits, and did not register voters, a Cabinet Secretary has said.
Gender and Youth CS Sicily Kariuki noted that the IEBC kit was used for enlisting NYS recruits under the National Empowerment Programme initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta to transform lives of youths.
“I only used the 200 BVR kits for recruitment purposes. We used the machines to know who we are recruiting and for purposes of processing their payments,” said Ms Kariuki in Mwatate.
