Nakuru - Police in Kenya arrested a man caught with a live bullet during thanksgiving rally led by President Uhuru Kenyata in Nakuru town over the weekend.

Over 5 000 police officers had been deployed to manage the huge crowd that converged to celebrate the termination of the International Criminal Court (ICC) cases against six Kenyans, including Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto.

According to the  Standard, the man, who was identified as Dickson Oduor Gwala, said he had picked the bullet up along the road and was planning to hand it over to police.

A Kenyans report said that police accompanied Gwala to his house for a further search, but details remain unclear. 

It also remained unclear whether Gwala was working alone or was in a network to cause trouble at the function.
