Exposed: Scandal of guns for hire

Ambulances are being used by gun-runners to ferry arms to hideouts in the slums.

There the guns are stockpiled and then sold or hired out to criminals.

A six-shot revolver can be hired for Sh2,500 a day, and an AK-47 assault rifle goes for Sh3,000.

You could buy the same revolver outright for Sh20,000 and the AK-47, with its lethal fire rate of 10 shots a second, for just Sh30,000. 

A month-long investigation by NairobiNews has revealed that arms dealers have cynically resorted to using ambulances to escape the attention of police and other security forces.
