Only 100 civilians have been issued with the new gun licenses, the government has said.

Charles Mukindia, Chairperson, Firearms Licensing Board on Monday said the process is slow to ensure that those issued with the new permit meet the criteria.


“At least 100 civilian licensed firearms holders out of the approximately 7000 registered have been vetted so far,” he said.

The process is supposed to take four days starting Monday.

This is after the government gave gun holders a chance to get new permits after mandatory vetting.

All civilian holders of firearm licences and permits in Nairobi region will undergo a mandatory four-day vetting starting Monday.

The exercise is being conducted at the Police Pavilion in South C and culminate on Thursday February 7, 2019.

The board said the vetting dates for other regions outside Nairobi will be announced at a later date through electronic and print media.
