Former Kameme FM Presenter caught red-handed impersonating NIS officer
He was arrested with tender documents from KPLC.
Michael Njoroge Wairimu, 34 was nabbed at Kasarani Estate after reports emerged that he had been on a conning spree involving renowned politicians and other Kenyans, promising to outdo corruption cases levelled against them.
The suspect has in the recent past cheated people that he will help them get tenders in the government, majorly at the Kenya Power and Lighting Company, as he “was connected to the managers at KPLC.”
Mr Njoroge was once a presenter at the Nairobi-based Kameme FM and was sacked in 2010 for reasons could not immediately establish.
Initial investigations, according to the police at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, indicated that the suspect has been siphoning a minimum of Sh50,000 from whoever would seek his services.
Mr Njoroge was arrested in possession of Kenya Power tender documents, which is said to have obtained after posing as an Intelligence officer working for the NIS.
On presentation to court, however, the court gave the prosecutor three more days to probe the matter and present evidence in court to enable the case to proceed.
The arrest of Mr Njoroge comes days after another key suspect, Moses Muigai Ngugi, who was arrested on Wednesday, of pretending to work for the National Intelligence Service, Kenya Bureau of Standards, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and immigration department.
Police said they found cards showing he worked for the said agencies, two guns and 700 bullets his house in Syokimau, Machakos County.
