The Law Society of Kenya has accused a man known as Brian Mwendwa of masquerading as a lawyer.
Mwendwa is reported to have taken and won 26 cases in the Kenyan courts with no academic credentials.
According to a statement issued by the LSK Nairobi Branch on Thursday, Brian Mwenda is neither a lawyer of the High Court of Kenya nor a member of the organization.
“It has come to our notice that Mr. Brian Mwenda has been operating within our legal community under a false guise, falsely presenting himself as an advocate.”
The Branch wishes to notify all members of the society and of the public that Brian Mwenda Njagi is not an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya, from the Society’s records, neither is he a member of the Branch,” the statement partly reads.
The LSK requested additional research into this incident, which exposes a troubling likely case of identity th£ft. LSK warned the public about a guy who is purportedly acting as an attorney and ch£ating naive customers. [Swipe]
