A NAIROBI court was yesterday told that a recruitment firm sought to hire Kenyans for jobs in Kuwait despite being denied a certificate by the ministry of Labour. And although Mukmil Opportunities Centre was denied the certificate for failing to meet some requirements, the organisation went ahead and placed an advertisement calling interested people to apply for recruitment for alleged jobs in Kuwait.
Caleb Okello who is in charge of the labour Immigration at the ministry of Labour told the court that the ministry received a letter from the Kamukunji Police seeking clarifications about the company. He said the ministry wrote back to the police explaining why the company was denied the certificate. The officer was testifying in a case where Rose Ongoro and Joshua Adem have been charged with conspiracy to defraud. The case was adjourned to October 5.
