0 532

The government has revoked Dagoretti MP Simba Arati’s firearm license in what is seen as a crackdown on National Resistance Movement members.

The Firearms Licensing Board revoked the permit today and asked Arati to surrender his pistol and shotgun by close of business.

The Dagoretti North MP is a member of the movement led by NASA boss Raila Odinga.

On Tuesday,  Interior CS Fred Matiang’i invoked Section 22 of the Prevention Organised Crimes Act, 2010 to declare the opposition movement as “an organised criminal group”.

The NRM was formed on October 25, 2017, a day before the repeat polls were held.
