A 23-year-old man died today during the ongoing police recruitment exercise at Baraza Park in Matuga, Kwale County.
Mwarika Rika, who was among 38 male candidates shortlisted for running, collapsed right at the finish line after taking part in a six kilometre race.
Meanwhile the recruitment exercise went on smoothly in Starehe Constituency where hundreds of youth turned up for recruitment.
Police Spokesman Charles Owino who was present at Starehe however told Ghetto Radio News that some candidates were sent away after information on their IDs indicated that they were not from Nairobi.
The exercise was seeking to recruit 10,000 officers into the service.
