Fake cop Waiganjo sentenced to third jail term

Police impostor Joshua Waiganjo has been jailed for five years for wearing police uniform and impersonating a police officer.

He was, however, cleared of charges of robbery with violence. Naivasha Magistrate Shadrack Mwinzi gave him 14 days to appeal.

Waiganjo denied that the Kenya Police Reservists Service had been disbanded, saying he was still an assistant commissioner of police.

He said he had an enlistment number 10885 assigned to him. Waiganjo has been in custody after his cover was blown for having impersonated a senior police officer.

Waiganjo is yet to finish a two-year sentence which he is serving at King’ong’o Prisons having served another two-year sentence at the Naivasha Maximum Prison for a separate offence.

He is facing two other charges together with former Anti-Stock Theft Unit Commandant Mr Michael Remi Ngugi.
