A former three secondary student has been charged in a Nairobi court with attempting to obtain 90,000 shillings from three MPs to settle hospital bills while pretending to be an OCPD.

The accused has admitted to obtaining the money from the MPs and also admitted to sending an abusive text message to a third MP who had declined to send him money.

This comes after a man was last week discovered to be posing as the deputy Rift Valley police boss. Joshua Waganjo was arraigned in court last week where he denied charges of robbery with violence, impersonating police officers and being in possession of a police uniform.
