Permanent secretary from the ministry of interior security and coordination of national government, Dr karanja kibicho has defended the president's move to burn the illicit firearms at kajiado today.
Karanja kibicho says that it was the only safer method to dispose the guns because if means being confiscated without further measures then rogue officers can sell them or sneak them to the public.
PS Dr karanja kibicho also adds that the move in accordance to the UN protocol that lays out measures to be taken in the handling of firearms. Firearms not registered by the government should be vandalized to curb theft and terrorism acts.
"H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta has once again led the safe disposal and destruction of 5,144 illicit small arms and light weapons in Ngong. This sends a strong statement on Kenya's commitment to complying with the UN Firearms Protocol", karanja kibicho said.
Kenyans on the social media faulted president Uhuru for the move because it interferes with the environment (pollution).
