To begin with, he was a bright person who studied economics at university but could not secure employment in the job market.

"I only did an internship at Makueni County Assembly after graduation. After that, I made uncountable job application all over the country and attended several interviews but none came through," he said.

As he waited for things to open up, the young Mulei ventured into the boda boda business in Wote Makueni to earn a living.

Tried police recruitment for seven years

With hopes of finding an entry into the industry dwindling fading out, the 28-year-old figured he needed to shift his attention to something else.

That is when he decided to try out the police service and attended several recruitment exercises before one finally came through.

"I tried since 2015, and each year, I would travel from Eldoret to Moi and then to Makueni whenever there was a recruitment drive, but all those were in vain," he recounted.

His zeal for service was witnessed during police training at Kiganjo when he excelled as a "sticky man" and was privileged to choose his posting location.

"I was given a red lanyard for being the best in drills, academics, and discipline in my squad," a proud Mulei continued.

The diligent officer discloses that he believed that his degree would expedite his progress within the police service, but that has not happened.
