The team charged with investigating the case of police imposter Joshua Waiganjo recommended the removal of two high-level security officials on Thursday (January 31st), Kenya's The Standard reported.
The team found that Rift Valley police boss John M'mbijiwe and Anti-Stock Theft Unit Commandant Rimi Ngugi had close relationships with Waiganjo, who was privy to confidential security information. In presenting its findings to the National Police Service Commission (NPSC), the team recommended the retirement or the firing of M'mbijiwe and Ngugi, who may face criminal charges.
The team, led by Mary Owuor, also cleared former Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere, saying investigations proved that he did not know Waiganjo, despite Waiganjo's assertions to the contrary. The report also cleared suspended Njoro commanding officer Peter Nthiga of involvement, recommending that he be reinstated and transferred out of the region.
