Waiganjo’s case adjourned due to sickness

15 January 2014, 12:00 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The case against Joshua Karianjahi Waiganjo, who is accused of imposing as police officer for a couple of years, failed to proceed Tuesday at Nyeri law courts as he is currently admitted at Naivasha District Hospital.

Waiganjo is also faced with fraud charges which he has denied.

When the case came up for hearing, the prosecution led by Superintendent Stancelous Mwangi told Chief Magistrate Wilbrodah Juma that the accused fell sick before being taken to Nyeri.

Waiganjo was admitted at the hospital under tight security after his condition deteriorated, the court heard.

The prosecutor said the officer in charge of Naivasha maximum prison had written to the court stating that the accused could not be produced as expected.

“The said subject is undergoing treatment at the said hospital where he is admitted and we request the court to fix another hearing date,” read the statement in part.

Waiganjo is accused that on diverse dates between April 6 and October 16, 2008 within Nyeri County he obtained money by false pretense.

He is alleged to have presented himself as a senior superintendent of police attached to General Service Unit (GSU) headquarters Nairobi to Daniel Kago Gachanja, claiming he was in a position to recruit him to join the Administration police college.

He is also facing four other different counts of obtaining money by false pretense.

The case will be mentioned on January 21, 2014.
