Dennis Ngengi Muigai alias Andrew Kirangi has been arrested for impersonating as a police & military intelligence officers. Dennis caused quite a social media star after appearing on Citizen TV giving an eyewitness account of the accident that claimed the life of Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru.
Dennis had also been at the scene of the Lake Nakuru chopper crash that claimed the lives of five people who included a pilot and four Jubilee party supporters. His appearance giving an eyewitness account in yet another high profile accident left Kenyans wondering whether this was a mere case of coincidence.
Ngengi was arrested on Friday in Juja just a day after the Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro launched a probe on his involvement in the two accidents. Police however say his arrests is because he has been impersonating as a police officer and at times a military intelligence officer based at statehouse.
In an earlier interview on NTV at the shores of Lake Nakuru, Ngegi claimed that he was a state pilot.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinet confirmed the arrest saying he will be charged in court once investigations are completed.
