Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Saturday urged criminal gangs to return illegal firearms within seven days.
Sonko said those who will return the illegally acquired guns will be given amnesty, offered protection and job opportunities.
Speaking when he attended the fundraiser of Harrison Karanja, who is recuperating from several gunshot wounds, Sonko said young people must not engage in criminal activities.
Karanja was shot and wounded by unknown gun men in Kayole. His hospital bill accumulated to over Sh6.8 million at a Nairobi hospital.
At least Sh5.1million was raised.
