KDF recruitment exercise was on Thursday disrupted in Kwale after bees invaded the recruitment center.

Recruits who had shown up for the exercise at Vigurungani stadium in Kinango sub-county were forced to lie on the ground and others to flee after a swarm of bees ambushed the center.

Several people were injured and rushed to the hospital following the chaos brought about by the bees.

So far, the exercise has been carried out in Lunga Lunga and Msambweni sub-counties and was expected to be done in Kinango sub-county on Thursday but the bees seem to have had other plans.

Matuga exercise will be carried out on Friday.

The exercise which started on Monday 8th February and will end on 19th February 2021, aims to recruit over 4,400 Kenyans into the KDF across all the 327 sub-counties.
