Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has continued the war on gun crime, urging those with illegal weapons to hand them in or face the wrath of the law.

During his Labour Day speech Thursday, the president reiterated the government's mission to kill gun crime and insisted that there would be no tolerance on gun wielding criminals.

" My government will not tolerate gun crime and armed criminals thus the gun hand in amnesty. Since we have had varied success in having guns returned, we are extending the deadline for two more weeks, he said.

" I urge those that have weapons in their possession to return them during this time or face the full wrath of the law if they do not, he added.

Security or lack of has been one of the reasons the economy has not done well in the last year and the government is keen on ensuring a revere of the current fortunes.

Sectors such as tourism have suffered adversely from insecurity in the country and the president insisted that there would be no tolerance of criminal activity.

" The economy has suffered as a result of insecurity and that has to be looked at, he added.
