This post that widely circulated on WhatsApp claims to advertise jobs at the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA). Among the advertised positions are; accountants, electricians, drivers and ECDE teachers.
The total tally of unemployed Kenyans is at a high of 1.2 million based on findings published here. This has resulted in scammers taking advantage of the situation by creating false job vacancies using notable organizations’ brands. A case in point is a fake job vacancy at Quickmart which sought to swindle desperate Kenyans as debunked by Piga Firimbi.
NACADA Kenya’s official Twitter handle debunks the job advert circulating, terming it as fake in this tweet published on April 19, 2022. Similarly, on their website, this advertisement is no where to be seen, thus confirming tit to be a hoax.
FAKE JOBS ALERT
Our attention has been drawn to this advert circulating online on vacancies at the Authority. We wish to inform members of the public that the attached advert is FAKE and should thus be dismissed with contempt. pic.twitter.com/Z3kOHHkdAY
