A man whose picture started circulating on social media showing him picking garbage with a gun has been arrested. He was seen with the pistol at Nairobi’s Pipeline estate in Kenya.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the ‘garbage collector’ was seized on Friday after the matter was brought to their attention by Kenyans on Twitter (KOT).
“A man who was photographed armed & the matter brought to our attention has been arrested & will be charged accordingly.
“We thank #KOT for bringing this matter to our attention & for additional information that we received through DMS. Let’s work together to keep our country safe,” DCI said on Twitter.
The post from the DCI however did not indicate the identity of the man or what he will be charged with.
