NAIROBI: Secretary to the Cabinet Francis Kimemia has dismissed police imposter Joshua Waiganjo's claims of plotting to have him jailed.
On Tuesday, Mr Waiganjo told a Nakuru court that over Sh20 million had allegedly been used by Mr Kimemia, former Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Director Ndegwa Muhoro, in an attempt to have him convicted.
Waiganjo is facing three counts of impersonating a senior police officer.
- 1 Governor Kimemia reshuflles cabinet at midnight
- 2 Political supremacy battle erupts in Nyandarua
- 3 County buys Sh500m equipment
- 4 Sh45m medical supplies acquired
"He knows very well the procedure to follow if indeed whatever he is saying is true. He is just seeking sympathy," charged Kimemia.
He challenged Waiganjo to make a police statement instead of using court precincts to malign government employees.
"He should prove that he is not a criminal because it is police officers who exposed him," said Kimemia.
The State House officer said he would sue Waiganjo for defamation and libel and moved to defend Mr Iteere and Mr Ndegwa, whom he described as officers of high integrity.
"We shall not hesitate to prefer defamation charges against him. We don't dance with criminals and I shall make sure that he faces the consequences over his actions," said Kimemia.
Waiganjo was arrested on January 4, 2013 after suspicion rose following the Baragoi massacre that left more than 40 police officers dead in an attack by heavily armed cattle rustlers.
