Farmer surrenders automatic rifle, 40 bullets to police

27 May 2016, 15:11 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - A farmer near Isiolo-Meru boarder has surrendered his G3 rifle with 40 rounds of ammunition to the police as a way of restoring peace in the volatile boarder area.

Charles Kamwibua said he wanted to lead as an example to encourage those with illegal firearms to surrender to relevant authorities.

The firearm was received by County Commissioner Wilfred Nyagwang’a who lauded the move and asked other locals with illegal firearms to surrender them for registration purposes.

He said that most residents are afraid of being arrested but assured them that no one will be arrested as they will just register the rifles for security reasons.

The County Commissioner asked leaders to educate residents on the importance of registering their guns because some do not understand why the registration is done.

The gun was registered and returned to Kamwibua by the authorities.

The farmer said he keeps the gun to defend himself against bandits and armed robbers.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, during his visit to Meru and Isiolo Counties, asked those with illegal firearms to register to the police as a way of restoring peace in the volatile Meru- Isiolo border.
