Keep off married women, randy NYS recruits told

National Youth Service recruits in Kisumu have been warned to keep off married women in the informal settlements in the area.

While issuing the warning, Kisumu Central MP Ken Obura said he had received information from various sources that the servicemen posted in Kisumu were sleeping with married women at the expense of work.

The recruits were deployed to help implement the youth empowerment program.

Mr Obura said he had been told that the servicemen are targeting people’s wives who work under the program and others who are not, warning them that it was spoiling the image of a good project.


“Servicemen should leave married women alone. It is wrong to sleep with people’s wives yet your role is to guide, help and supervise the women who have dedicated their lives in the projects which is their source of livelihood,” said Obura.

He however said the servicemen were free to ‘mingle’ with single women.

There have been complaints from residents who claim that their wives sometimes don’t return home and opt to go for the servicemen.

Mr Obura was speaking during the re-launch of the NYS youth empowerment project in Nyalenda where he was accompanied by the Youth and Public Service Principal Secretary Lillian Omollo.
