Five peo­ple ar­rested on Wed­nes­day, in­clud­ing three for­mer county em­ploy­ees, were charged yes­ter­day with im­per­son­at­ing City Hall of­fi­cials.

For­mer In­spec­torate of­fi­cers Stan­ley Mu­ritu, Ge­orge Muiruri and Richard Ki­mani were ar­rested by county de­tec­tives and EACC of­fi­cers.

County direc­tor of in­ves­ti­ga­tions Ge­of­frey Kathurima said the three were ar­rested on Haile Se­lassie Av­enue, while com­man­deer­ing a pri­vate car. “These for­mer em­ploy­ees are giv­ing us sleep­less nights,” he said.
