Nyeri – Joshua Waiganjo will spend two and a half years in
jail after a Nyeri court found him guilty of impersonating
police officers and committing fraud. Waiganjo who was last year jailed for another two years for
being in illegal possession of police uniforms was convicted

once more, by Nyeri Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma. He was found guilty of coning three Nyeri families of KES
280, 000 in the pretext that he would assist their children
get recruited as administration police officers. During the trial leading to the judgement, the court heard
how Waiganjo reportedly floated the names of senior police
officers including current Nakuru Governor Kinuthia
Mbugua, when he undertook the illegal AP’s “recruitment”
exercise. The court also heard how Waiganjo purported that his
illegal recruitment exercise had the blessings of retired
president Mwai Kibaki – ostensibly because more recruits
had to come from Kibaki’s home turf of Nyeri. Also read: High court upholds Waiganjo’s two-year jail term He was charged with falsely obtaining KES 50, 000 from
Daniel Kago, KES 100, 000 from James Waichoya and KES
130,000 from Beatrice Wangui in Othaya. In each of the three occasions, the court heard that he
picked the KCSE certificates of the sons of Kago, Waichoya
and Wangui, and promised to have them recruited in the
police force.
