Nairobi - Kenya Power has warned the public of associating with fraudsters promising jobs at the company in exchange for money.

The company says that there are fraudsters who have taken advantage of desperate Kenyans by claiming to be employees at the firm and promising jobs in exchange for sums of money.

It is understood that some have forked out as much as KES 100,000 to secure jobs at the firm.

In a statement, the company says that it is following leads on persons said to be dong so but has urged Kenyans to only seek jobs advertised on the company's website.

" It has come to our attention that some members of the public have been conned by internet fraudsters who ask for money from job seekers purporting to help facilitate emails for job applications and arrange for job interviews at Kenya Power's Stima Plaza offices.

" Please be advised that external job opportunities are usually advertised through newspapers or the Kenya Power website www.KenyaPower.co.ke.

" We ask the public not to fall for such persons claiming to be able to provide the above, the statement from the company said.
