Ministry exposes Wanjigi’s lies in firearms tussle with Kinoti
The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government has written to controversial businessman Jimi Wanjigi requiring him to present himself to the Firearm Licensing Board to get his firearms back.
The ministry acknowledged receipt of a court order Jimi attached in his letter demanding to be given the dangerous firearms.
But it noted that the Board is an independent body mandated by Constitution deal with licensing of firearms to the civilian.
The Ministry noted that it is the mandate of board to issue firearms to civilians, noting that matter was litigated in court in the absence of the board which could have helped the court to arrive at a reasonable dtermination.
It noted that the National Police Service does not store firearms or keep and or deal with civilian firearms as alleged in the Petition 520 of 2017 filed by Wanjigi.
“ We find this mischievous, from now henceforth kindly consider dealing with the Board directly,” the letter signed by Daniel Seme.
