The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

A senior po­lice of­fi­cer yes­ter­day said po­lice im­poster Joshua Waiganjo was job­less when he first met him in 2007. Senior su­per­in­ten­dent James Mugera said five years later, he saw Waiganjo in po­lice uni­form and was in­formed he had be­come a po­lice re­servist. Mugera, cur­rently at­tached to Ki­ambu, told senior res­i­dent mag­is­trate Joe Omido Waiganjo was an im­poster. “I met him in 2012 wear­ing a po­lice jun­gle uni­form and he had a rank of senior su­per­in­ten­dent, work­ing at the Po­lice Re­servist Unit,” he said. An­other of­fi­cer Joel Mopel said his for­mer boss Remy Ngugi, a com­man­dant at Anti-Stoke Theft Unit, was a close friend of Waiganjo and would oc­ca­sion­ally send him to pick Waiganjo from Nakuru to Gil­gil. Mopel, cur­rently at­tached to We­buye po­lice di­vi­sional head­quar­ters, told the court Waiganjo told him he worked at the provin­cial po­lice of­fice in Nakuru and had As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice rank.
