The National Council for Population and Development (NCPD) is distancing itself from information circulating on social networks purporting that it was seeking to employ staff for the upcoming National census.

The Director General Dr. Josephine Kibaru- Mbae is therefore, cautioning members of the public to be wary of the fraudsters’ masquerading to be recruiting census staff on behalf of the council. She argued that was the mandate of the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics’ (KNBS) and not NCPD’s.

She therefore urged members of the public to remain vigilant and report such suspicious, dubious activities to the nearest police station. The DG further warned that NCPD will not be held liable for any loses or injuries from such circumstances.
