Police Storm TV Station, Arrest Retired Police Officer for Impersonation
On Wednesday, June 29, a former police officer who appeared for a television interview in full police uniform was arrested on charges of impersonating police officers.
Monica Wamaitha Gitau, the suspect, is a Kenyan politician running for the Nairobi Women Representative seat on the Usawa Party ticket. In 2011, she retired from the Administration Police.
Gitau was arrested shortly after the interview on Inooro TV ended. She was accused of impersonating a real cop by attending media interviews while dressed in a Persian blue police uniform with full police badges.
A police report read;
“Stapol Kilimani and team embarked on a fact-finding mission to the studios located along Maalim Juma road Dennis Prit road and ambushed the suspect who was still in the same regalia.”
Kilimani OCPD Andrew Mbogo confirmed the arrest and stated that investigations have begun and that more information will be released later. He also stated that it is illegal to retire and continue to wear a police uniform.
“We are investigating why she was wearing the uniform and probably by tomorrow morning we shall give a full report. We will reveal the law she breached by then. She is purported to have retired from the Administration Police Service in 2011. What she did is an offence.”
