Ex-GSU officer arrested with 47 illegal rifles

11 June 2015, 16:25 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A former American soldier, a retired General Service Unit (GSU) officer and a Mandera County resident have been arrested in Sagana, Kirinyaga County with 27 AK 47 assault rifles.

Stuart Donaldson, 67, Jesse Kinyua, 36, and Aden Abdulahi, 36, were later arraigned in court where they denied the charges before the Baricho court Principal Magistrate, Evans Keago.

The accused were charged that on June 6, this year at the Wilderness Camp in Sagana, they were found with the assault rifles in contravention with the law.

They however denied the charges.

They were represented by a Nairobi based lawyer, Robert Onyango who urged the court to release them on bond terms saying the offense was bailable.

The prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Rose Roneya and Irene Magolo, however opposed the bail application citing incomplete verification of some items the accused were allegedly found with.

The prosecution asked the court to remand them at Sagana police station pending the arrival of Anti-Terror Police Personnel from Nairobi to inspect a communication gadget and other items to ascertain their use.

“Once the verification and examinations are carried out and turn out to be what we are suspecting, then we are likely to charge the accused with more criminal offenses,’’ Roneya told the court.

The court remanded the three until June 16 when their case will be heard.
