The story of a senior female officer who was alleged to have been married to two junior police officers has taken a new turn after a credible source said the reports were false.
Anne Wanjiru Waiganjo, a Chief Inspector, attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), was featured in a local daily with reports that she was married to an inspector in the police force, David Murimi and another junior officer in the prisons service, David Mbitu Muchi.
The Chief Inspector was accused of bigamy, the offence of marrying someone while already being married to someone else.
Speaking to members of the press, a source privy to the matter said that contrary to the reports, Anne’s first marriage to David Murimi was dissolved by a court o law in 2020.
Anne further refuted claims that she was previously married, stating that there was no such marriage.
Before getting divorced, the officer explained that she was subjected to verbal and physical abuse and was hospitalised a couple of times because of the extensive injuries she sustained.
Kenyannews.co.ke has learnt that the assault case was reported at Kikuyu police station, but David Murimi being a police officer, Anne felt it was wise to protect the image of the National Police Service.
She also claimed that when she got into the marriage, Murimi had a child with another woman, adding that he misrepresented his career to her.
She added that she was forced to take care of the child, not being aware of the situation with the baby mama.
On his part, in court documents, Murimi challenged his wife to table evidence of his cruelty as he embroiled in a separate divorce case.
This matter comes just a month after the Interior CS Fred Matiang’i revealed that the police standing orders would be revised to stop senior police officers from engaging in romantic affairs with their junior colleagues.
