Policewoman Emma Brenda Wanjiru has been voted as one of Kenya’s most stunning law enforcement officers by the public. Her popularity soared in 2016 when keen-eyed Kenyans noticed her exceptional beauty.
Hailing from Nyahururu in the central region of Kenya, Emma Brenda, raised by her mother after her parents’ divorce at the age of four, has deep roots in a family associated with the police force. In a recent interview on national television, she credited her mother for instilling discipline and shaping her character with invaluable morals.
After graduating from high school in 2008, Emma became a mother during a visit to Kiserian, Kajiado County. A chance encounter with her ex-boyfriend resulted in an unplanned pregnancy. Fearing her mother’s reaction, Emma and her partner relocated to Rongai, leasing a single room. However, the relationship turned abusive, both mentally and physically, prompting Emma to return home with her eight-week-old daughter.
Upon returning to Nairobi, Emma worked as a supermarket attendant and tried her luck in the military. In 2012, she participated in the police recruitment process, securing the fifth position. Initially dropped due to limited slots for women, Emma was later reinstated when one of the chosen women became pregnant. She successfully completed the 18-month training program at the Kiganjo Police Training College before entering service.
Emma’s journey is a remarkable success story, defying the challenges she faced growing up. Her life serves as a testament to the resilience and capability of women to excel in all aspects of life. Today, she leverages her significant social media following to educate and inform the public on various topics.
