The government through the Interior P.S Karanja Kibicho has announced a four-day mandatory vetting for all firearm license and permit holders in Nairobi starting Monday February.
The decision comes after the National Gun Owners Association withdrew their court case on Monday seeking to stop the planned mandatory vetting.
The association, in a consent registered in court on Monday January 28, said they had withdrawn the matter to enable regulation and digitization of records.
During the exercise, one will be required to have all supporting documents for all guns, firearms and bullets.
License holders have been informed to book online @ www.firearms.or.ke.
Firearm Licensing Board Charles Mwongera Mukindia said “upon verification, gun holders shall undergo a gun ballistic analysis at the DCI headquarters.”
The Kenya Defense forces, Kenya Police Service, Kenya Prison service, Kenya wildlife service, National Intelligence service, Kenya forest service and other senior government services will be exempted from the exercise.
