Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has left Kenyans fascinated with the length of one of his weapons.
Mr Ngunjiri surrendered his guns to the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Offices on Tuesday morning.
The moved followed a directive by the Inspector-General Hillary Mutyambai saying that the National Police Service (NPS) would no longer provide security to State officers who are involved in crime until they are cleared by the courts.
In addition, such VIPs who are civilian firearm holders will have their licenses cancelled and weapons withdrawn.
According to police, Mr Ngunjiri’s guns were withdrawn because he is under investigation following his remarks regarding Deputy President William Ruto’s ordeal over his official residence in Mombasa.
He claimed that some government officials were frustrating the deputy president and that they had conspired to kick him out of his newly renovated official residence in Mombasa.
But Kenyans appear to be more interested with the hunting rifle he was pictured carrying while walking into the DCI offices in Nakuru.
The rifle is wrapped inside a white cloth but its shape could still be outlined.
The average length of a hunting rifle is 24 inches long. This is what KOT had to say about the size of the gun:
Ok that's a gun? . I wanna be a politician hehe.

I don’t know shit about guns. But I have watched a few movies and I know that before you load, aim and fire from this gun, the assassin will have perforated your Legislator ass. Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri increased chances of survival by doing away with that shoot-a-buffalo gun. pic.twitter.com/IXzl2sw5P6
