Politician Steve Mbogo claims life is in danger

City politician Steve Mbogo has moved to court challenging the cancellation of his firearm certificate by the Firearm Licensing Board (FLB).

Mbogo told the High Cout that his life was in danger urging it to compel FLB to have his guns returned.

Through lawyer Willis Evans, Mbogo accused the board of being biased and endangering his security.

Court documents filed by Mr Evans stated: "The grant leave should operate as a stay to stop the implementation of the impugned decision.”

Bias decision

He added: “My client applied for the licence of the firearms and was issued with the certificate which has been lawfully renewed since acquisition.”

According to Mbogo the decision of the board was prejudicial, posed a threat to his security and that it was not properly communicated.

In January, Mbogo was spotted with a sophisticated firearm and bulletproof vest which led to the police questioning him over their ownership.

Later the politician who vied for the Starehe Parliamentary seat said that he had been cleared after verifying the ownership of the guns.

Illegal firearms

Reports had swirled claiming that the weapons he was spotted with at the DusitD2 attack had not been licensed.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i said the government had confiscated over 300 illegal firearms in the ongoing mandatory vetting of private gun owners in Nairobi.

Matiangi revealed that over 300 firearms and more than 5000 rounds of ammunition have so far been impounded for being in the hands of civilians illegally.
