Senior DCI Officer Collapses & Dies While Attending Party

Anne Wanjiru Waiganjo, a senior officer attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Karen, collapsed and died on Saturday evening, July 3 while attending a party hosted by a colleague in Upper Hill, Nairobi.

In a report by K24, the officer collapsed at around 5.39 pm as she was attending senior police officer, SSP Henry Kiambata's party at Baita restaurant where she had complained of chest pains.

The report was filed by SCCIO Lang'ata, Abdirashid Yakub.

“On July 3, 2021 at around 1739hrs duty officer Capitol Hill received a report from SCCIO Langata, Mr Abdirashid Yakub, that one No.235389 CI (w) Ann Wanjiru Waiganjo the Officer in charge DCI Karen suddenly collapsed while at Baita Restaurant within Upper Hill,” part of the report read.

The police report added that the officer was pronounced dead on arrival at Nairobi Hospital.

The body has since been moved to the Kenyatta University mortuary awaiting an autopsy as investigations by police continue.

Anne Waiganjo became a known figure earlier this year following reports that she had been married to two junior officers.

A report by a local daily had termed her as a bigamist, claiming that she had been married to inspector David Murimi as well as David Mbitu Muchi, a junior officer in the prisons service.

The reports were however dismissed by a source privy to the matter, who told a local daily that Waiganjo's first marriage with Murimi had been dissolved in court.

The source alleged that Waiganjo had experienced numerous physical and verbal abuse to the extent of being admitted to a hospital.

"The assault case was reported at Kikuyu police station but David Murimi being a police officer, she felt it was prudent to protect the image of the National Police service," the source disclosed.

Waiganjo, through court documents, also alleged to have received threats after filing for divorce from the officer. The allegations were however disputed by Murimi who challenged Waiganjo to submit evidence of her claims in court.

The court, however, ruled in favour of Waiganjo.

"It is ordered that the marriage celebrated between Waiganjo and Murimi on September 18, 2012, be and is hereby dissolved," read part of the ruling.

Anne is a sister to Joshua Waiganjo; the man who was accused of masquerading as a police officer.
