Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Corruption

The police recruitment exercise that was carried in my hometown was a proof to me that for you get something easily you have to unleash something from your pockets. My brother Etori went there, did some running and the exercise and everything but at the end of the day he was left out.Then he just spoke to a certain police officer I believe there boss who asked him to come with fifty thousand Kenya shillings something which he did and was automatically picked. Today he is at Kiganjo training to be a police officer having displaced one person who I believe had all the qualities or deserved to qualify.
