Controversial politician and businessman Steve Mbogo armed with a Semi-Automatic Assault Rifle has showed up at Riverside Drive where terrorists struck this afternoon and are still in the building.
The self-proclaimed billionaire who vied for Starehe Parliamentary seat last year is reportedly a licensed gun holder but the type of gun he and his friend showed up with raises queries.
He came with intention of helping security personnel exterminate the terrorists said to have killed unknown number of people, and others seriously injured. It is not clear if Mbogo is trained to use the rifle.
The gun is the type used by the country’s special forces. They could be easily mistaken for Recce Squad officers. He was also donned in a bullet-proof vest.
