Appearing before Chief Magistrate Bernard Mararo, Waiganjo who faces a robbery with violence charge said he bought the lorry in Embu and accused the police of framing him. “The police want to ensure I don’t leave prison and that’s why they are charging me of stealing a vehicle I own,” he said. Waiganjo is accused of violently robbing Stephen Kimani of his lorry and mobile phone, both valued at more than Sh4 million on August 16, 2012, in Kikopey, charges he denied.

Waiganjo denied changing the lorry’s registration number from KYY 524 to KZL 957, saying he bought the vehicle in 2007. “I have all the documents that show I legally own the vehicle. It is baffling to be branded a thief because even KRA said the said stolen vehicle does not exist,” he added.

Waiganjo, who currently has an abuse of office case pending in Nakuru, is serving a five-year jail term for posing as the deputy Rift Valley police boss for more than five years.

Mararo slated hearing of the case on March 3.
