Police recovered guns and hundreds of bullets when they raided a Malindi home suspected to belong to a well-known Nairobi businessman.
The businessman is known to be a billionaire and has been involved with politicians for years now.
A heavily armed multi-agency team arrived at the house early Monday morning with court orders to ransack it. They recovered five AK 47 guns with several rounds of ammunition.
It is understood police and intelligence agencies have been closely monitoring movement to and from the house and several other people both in Nairobi and Mombasa.
Police suspect the businessman has been working with several people to bring guns into the country using different entry points.
In a well-coordinated raid, another group of officers raided a house in Isiolo where they recovered an unknown number of guns and bulltes.
