A case involving Joshua Karianjahi Waiganjo who allegedly impersonated a police officer will proceed on October 4, 2013.
Waiganjo appeared before Nyeri Resident Magistrate Vincent Nyakundi for the mentioning of his case on Tuesday.
In the suit, Waiganjo who is facing four counts of fraud and impersonation allegedly committed in 2008 is represented by lawyer King’ori Mwangi.
He is charged that on diverse dates between August 6 and October 16, 2008 he pretended to be a Senior Superintendent of police attached to the GSU headquarters Nairobi.
In pretense, he obtained KES 50 000 from Daniel Kago Gachanja pledging to recruit his brother-in-law Humphrey Gichuru to the Administration Police force.
In another count, Waiganjo allegedly presented himself as a Senior Superintendent of police to James Waichoya Wambugu at the same period and obtained KES 100 000 pretending that he could recruit his son George Nyuba to the police force.
Waiganjo allegedly committed the offences within Nyeri County at Kiganjo area in Nyeri town and Narumoru Township respectively.
However, he denied the charges and was remanded after the prosecution objected his request to be released on bond or cash bail saying he was a threat to witnesses in the matter.
