President Uhuru Receives New Gun License After Being Vetted Afresh

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday received a new firearm license after undergoing a fresh round vetting as is required by law.

The deadline to register for the new generation certificate is on Monday next week.

“Today I received my new generation firearm license smart-card and certificate from the Firearms Licensing Board after undergoing the due certification process and obtaining a unique identification number,” President Kenyatta wrote on social media.

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i disbanded the former Firearms Licensing Board following claims of massive corruption in the guns licensing process.

This, he said was the reason behind the misuse of guns in the country.

What followed was a court case between the government and the National Gun Owners Association (NGAO).

The association would later withdraw the case barring fresh vetting of civilian gun owners while noting that “There was good understanding in the meeting and we understood where the government was coming from. They also understood where we were coming from.”

“The CS assured us and undertook that no member of NGAO who has a valid firearm certificate and is holding firearms legally would suffer any arbitrary revocation of their firearm license,” said NGAO chairman Anthony Wahome.
