Kenya Airways has debunked a fake job recruitment notice.

This follows a fictitious poster circulated on social media purporting to advertise 13 posts in the company including clerks, toll attendants and cleaners.

In a statement, the company said that no such notification has been issued adding that their job vacancies are only uploaded on their official account on Linkedln.

"Beware of FAKE job advertisements associated with Kenya Airways. All KQ vacancies are posted on our LinkedIn channel. DO NOT BE CONNED!" Kenya Airways tweeted on Monday, January 16.

This comes barely days after the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) raised an alarm over a fake job advert circulating on social media.

In a statement on Tuesday, January 10, NACADA said the notice purporting to advertise over 1,000 permanent and pensionable jobs did not originate from the agency and urged members of the public to ignore it.

"Our attention has been drawn to the advertisement below on purported vacancies at the Authority. We wish to inform members of the public that the announcement is FAKE and should thus be dismissed with contempt," NACADA said.

Further, NACADA cautioned members of the public against falling prey to fraudsters posing as NACADA employees targeting to fleece Kenyans of their hard-earned cash with a promise of helping them secure employment.

"The Authority does not charge for any application and neither does it engage individuals to conduct hiring of staff on its behalf," NACADA added.


NACADA noted that all its vacancies are advertised through the My GOv. pullout or newspapers of nationwide circulation.

"We advise the public to constantly confirm the validity of advertisements bearing the NACADA brand through our multiple official platforms such as the website ( and social media pages; Twitter (@NACADAKenya), Facebook (Nacada Kenya) and Instagram (@nacada.kenya)," NACADA added.
