Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri on Tuesday surrendered his firearms to the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation, Nakuru office, after being ordered to do so.
The MP handed his shotgun and a pistol as he lamented over political witchhunt following his allegiance to Deputy President William Ruto.
“I have never used the gun anyways and I know that God is the ultimate security,” he said at the DCI offices in Nakuru.
The MP slammed the move to be denied rights to own the guns saying he had not violated any regulations or handled the weapons wrongly to warrant such a directive.
The MP was ordered to appear before the DCI in Nakuru over his assertions regarding the DP who was reportedly kicked out of his office out official residence in Mombasa.
The MP while at the DCI office also revealed that his security’s details were withdrawn.
The move comes in the wake of a directive from the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai who ordered that the MPs and Governors facing graft allegations to seek alternative security and do without firearms.
Other leaders bound to lose their security include Governors Okoth Obado (Migori), Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu), Moses Lenolkulal (Samburu), Mike Sonko (Nairobi) and MPs Aisha Jumwa (Malindi) and Babu Owino (Embakasi East.
The withdrawal of the guns from the important political leaders came barely a week after MP Babu was involved in a shooting incident at a posh entertainment joint in Kilimani, B-Club.
Bubu reportedly shot Felix Orinda, alias DJ Evolve, after a confrontation ensued between them on Friday morning leaving the victim fighting in a critical condition.
Orinda is currently fighting for his life at Nairobi Hospital.
The incident led to arrest of Babu on the same day and was held at Gigiri Police station until Monday when he was arraigned at Milimani criminal court.
Babu denied attempted murder charges and was remanded for seven more days as the judge awaited a statement from the victim before determining whether the MP should be granted bail or not.
