The Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) has held a press conference on Tuesday with the media after citizen TV exposed how criminals hire guns from police officers. The DCI boss George Kinoti accompanied by other security personnel denied the claims that the weapons belonged to Kenyan Police force.
Speaking at the press conference George Kinoti said that a team of experts who were also present during the briefing inspected all the weapons and confirmed that they all lacked a serial number of rifles issued to security personnel in Kenya.
The experts demonstrated a number of guns returned to the police force claiming that the firearms were Chinese replica of Russian weapons. Most parts of the guns were obtained from different firearms and did not correspond to any serial number.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) has urged Kenyans to collaborate with the police by reporting any suspected criminals in possession of firearms. This will help in combating crime and ensuring security among Kenyans is guaranteed.
