Kenyan police recover unlicensed firearm from home of banned New Zealand runner

Kenyan police have discovered an unlicensed AK-47 rifle and over 20 rounds of ammunition at the residence of Zane Robertson, a banned New Zealand runner suspected of sexual assault. Robertson, who was detained on Wednesday, had previously been banned for eight years due to doping and tampering with the testing process. He will remain in custody for five days while investigations are concluded. Tom Makori, the Keiyo sub-county police commandant, confirmed the arrest and stated that the firearm and ammunition were recovered during the operation. According to local media, the alleged assault occurred during a party at Robertson’s home on Tuesday night. The 33-year-old athlete, who relocated to Kenya as a teenager to pursue long-distance running, achieved a bronze medal in the 5,000 meters at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The report was compiled by Humphrey Malalo, with writing by Hereward Holland and editing by Christian Radnedge. The article adheres to the Thomson RushHourDaily Trust Principles.
