Police imposter Waiganjo now wants to vie for parliamentary seat

Police imposter Joshua Waiganjo has declared that he will vie for the Njoro parliamentary seat in the coming general elections.

Even though he is serving a five-year jail term after he was found guilty by a Naivasha court of impersonating an assistant commissioner of police, Waiganjo , who masqueraded as a senior police officer for years without detection, has exuded confidence that he will oust the incumbent Mr Joseph Kiuna and be the next Njoro Member of Parliament.

“My being in court is not a hindrance at all,” he stated confidently in an exclusive interview at the Nakuru Law Courts on Monday where he had gone for hearing of his case.

He went further to state that his dented image would not stand in the way of his political ambitions, stating that nearly all prominent leaders in the country have faced serious charges or have served jail terms.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto were facing serious crimes against humanity at The Hague when we elected them,” he stated.

Waiganjo, serving his sixth month of the five-year term, was busted in 2013.
