Former Starehe MP aspirant Steve Mbogo was on Wednesday taken in for questioning after an image of him holding an automatic rifle outside the Dusit D2 Hotel went viral.

Mbogo who was contesting on an ODM party ticket is being held at the Nairobi Area police station.

Speaking to eDaily, the businessman confirmed being picked up by the police from his Karen home and was going through the process of “verifying ownership of guns.”

“They asked me to come and verify the ownership of my guns. We’re currently going through that process at the station. Hopefully, we’ll be done with it soonest possible,” he is quoted by the blog.
