NYS Suspends Recruitment Process

  • The National Youth Service has suspended the recruitment process until further notice.

    In a statement, NYS stated that the interviews for the shortlisted candidates, which were scheduled to run from March 29 to May 20, 2021, were postponed. 

    The decision was prompted by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive on the cessation of movement into and out of Nairobi, Kajiado, Machakos, Kiambu and Nakuru Counties.
