Hundreds of youths from across the country were on Wednesday stranded at the Emery hotel in Kileleshwa after being caught up in a job seekers scam.
The desperate youths were duped to part ways with Ksh. 1,000 each on the promise that they would be guaranteed jobs from Solar Energy Africa Kenya, a company that since Wednesday morning has had its authenticity questioned by the the jobless youths .
According to the youths they came across the advert online and decided to give it a go to an extent of paying Ksh. 1,000 unsuspiciously through mobile money transfer.
They were later addressed by the Emery Hotel management that there was no booking in the name of Solar Energy Africa Kenya.
The matter has been reported at the Kileleshwa Police Station and investigations are currently underway.There has been no comment from the company so far.
