The exercise was carried out in 331 centres in 290 constituencies countrywide and many candidates had complained that they had been locked out.

In Nairobi, the exercise was held at the Nyayo National Stadium, where more than 800 candidates were locked out due to various reasons – including arriving late and not meeting the set standards.

Those who failed to make the cut expressed disappointment while stating that they should have been given more time.

Inside the stadium, many were eliminated since they did not have the relevant certificates while others fell short as they did not have the required physical attributes – state of teeth and body scars – which disqualified them.

In Kisumu, confusion and low turnout marred the start of the exercise as potential recruits shuttled from one centre to the other.
