A section of Kibra residents were left in shock after a man known to many as mentally challenged was spotted at Woodley grounds holding state of the art firearm.
The man is pictured handcuffed by police and the gun hanging over his shoulders.
Plain Clothes Police officers allegedly found him seated next to the gun at a dumpsite in Kibra slums.
Some residents have however termed the incident as a set up by thugs who know that the police were trailing them.
“The guy was holding the machine in broad day light. Since he is known to many we had to call law enforcers and in a minute they were there FULLY armed, we were left with lots of questions to answer,” said a resident.
“Simjuhi lakini Kwa kuangalia hii kitu imeekelewa.” said Benson Mwanza.
He was taken to the Kilimani Police Station.
A section of the residents are now calling for the release of the guy.
