Nairobi - Former Rift Valley police boss John Mbijiwe and Remi Ngugi of the anti-stock theft unit have denied charges of abuse of office after they were implicated in the recruitment of “impostor” Joshua Waiganjo who masqueraded as a senior police officer for close to 10 years.
Mbijiwe is alleged to have ordered a “personal” file opened in Waiganjo’s name to disguise him as a police reservist, and allowed him to board a police aircraft during a sensitive security trip to Baragoi, Daily Nation reports.
The former PPO, court was told, also ordered two impounded vehicles released to Mr Waiganjo “with the full knowledge that he was not the rightful owner". Meanwhile Ngugi is reported to have given Waiganjo unlimited access and use of police vehicles and a personal driver.
