WAR ON ARMS, LIGHT WEAPONS
The KNFP was set up in 2003 under the Nairobi Protocol on Small Arms and Light Weapons. It is under the Office of the President and coordinates action against the proliferation of SALW. Ngului said the proliferation of weapons results from political instability in neighbouring Somalia, South Sudan and Southern Ethiopia. The weapons will be destroyed this year, six years after 20,000 illicit weapons were burnt in public.
