Government adminstrators in Laikipia Thursday recovered a machine gun which was stolen from police officers after a fierce gunfight with bandits in October 2021.

The weapon, a CQ machine gun, was handed over to an assistant chief after a series of community policing and engagements with the public.

While handing over the weapon to Ol Moran Police Station, Kirima Deputy County Commissioner Mr John Orata lauded members of the public for cooperation and support towards ending cattle rustling and banditry in the area.

Residents have been encouraged to voluntarily surrender illegal firearms.
