A Kenya Police recruit collapsed and died during a recruitment exercise in Webuye West, Bungoma county on Monday.
The recruit was pronounced dead after collapsing during the exercise which was conducted at Bokoli Secondary School.
The deceased, Dennis Mukhebi, is said to have collapsed while doing push-ups before being rushed to Bokoli Subcounty Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
He is said to have gone through all the initial recruitment stages but collapsed in the final stages.
Mukhebi, an engineering student at NYS college, Nairobi, is said to have tried joining the police service for several years but to no avail.
He is reported to have also tried out in vain for the KDF recruitment last week.
