Fear grappled residents after in a photo that has been circulating on social media, a man is seen with a pistol at a garbage collecting site.
A woman can also be seen walking towards the man’s direction oblivious of the danger that she may be putting herself into.
Pipeline residents then lamented telling CS Matiang’i to look into the matter for their safety.
They said their lives could be in danger if the increasing number of guns in wrong hands is anything to go by.
Businessman Reagan Amadi from Pipeline said the incident has left many in shock. He said people are wondering how many more illegal guns are in the area.
Well the Director of Criminal Investigations on Friday said a man photographed with a concealed gun in his waist at Pipeline in Mukuru has been arrested.
The man will be charged accordingly as per the law, DCI George Kinoti said on Twitter.
“A man who was photographed armed and the matter brought to our attention has been arrested and will be charged,” he said.
