On Thursday 17th March marked the third day of JSC interviews for 500 court assistant II positions at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

ON the 10th of March this year, the Judicial Service Commission published a list of 500 court assistant II shortlisted candidates on its website.

However, concerned Kenyans have accused the Judiciary Service Commission of publishing and shortlisting allegedly iligl candidates on their website.

According to sources speaking to this site, JSC cut out all aged applicants from the shortlisted candidates even though the age limit clause was not included nor specified in the application forms.

The just-published shortlisted Kenyans for interviews for the position of Court Assistant II is illegal. During the advert, there was no age limit but what has now come out shows the ages between 22-27 years old as only shortlisted. Where do other jobless Kenyans go to? How come they never told us during applications of the age limit?” a concerned source informed this site.

According to the application advert shared by JSC on their website, the applicants were only required to meet these qualifications.

“SHAME ON YOU JSC. So you shortlisted discriminating against age and no regional balancing. Shame” A Kenyan shared on the social media platform.
