Man arrested with pangas and rungus at Uhuru Park

A man was arrested on Wednesday as he tried to enter Uhuru Park with pangas (machetes) and rungus (clubs).

A video of the arrest shows the man telling the police that the crude weapons are always in the car, and that he had forgotten to dispose of them before entering Uhuru Park.

Zinakuwaga tu kwa gari. Nilisahau kuzitowa,” the man is heard telling the police.
