Fake lawyer with 26 cases, won all against trained lawyers has been arrested

Authorities in Kenya have detained Brian Mwenda, a fake lawyer who has won 26 cases while posing as an Advocate of the high court of Kenya.

Before his arrest, the attorney handled 26 cases before High Court Judges, Magistrates, and Court of Appeal Judges, all of which he won, Kenyan entertainment news website Mpasho reported.

Due to false pretences, the Law Society of Kenya Nairobi Branch Rapid Action Team (RAT) detained him.

When the RAT received complaints from the general population, he was captured.

He does not have a license to practice law in Kenya, according to LSK Nairobi Branch on their X account, and neither does he claim to be an advocate.

The notification stated, in part, that “the man has been presenting and conducting himself as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and a member of LSK Nairobi Branch,” which had come to the knowledge of the LSK Nairobi Branch through the Rapid Action Team (RAT).

He is being detained in the RAT’s main office while an investigation is ongoing.

Facts East Africa shared the story and said that the Kenyan man had managed to parade himself as a legal practitioner for years and even judges did not have any reason to doubt his professionalism until his recent arrest.

“Kenyan authorities have arrested a fake lawyer, Brian Mwenda, who has falsely been presenting himself as an Advocate of the high court of Kenya. He argued 26 cases before High Court Judges, Magistrates, and Court of Appeal Judges. He won all the 26 cases before his arrest,” Facts East Africa wrote to caption a photo of the suspect.

A photo of Mwenda circulating online shows him gently dressed in a lawyer’s black gown and wig.

His story has sparked conversations, with people asking that he be given a license to practice because even without it, he managed to outperform trained lawyers in the courts.

Below are some of the reactions to Mwenda’s interesting story:

“So he won 26 cases against Lawyers who went to the law school but he’s rather being punished? Those lawyers should rather be punished for letting one who hasn’t attended a law school win cases against them,” @Views09 wrote.

@Joan_Afc: “Fair enough. Winning 26 cases isn’t beans. He deserves that license.”

@RabsonTembo17: “Brian Mwenda has proved that Law School is a Scam and Law Bar Examination is a Scam too these are Standards made by the Colonial systems this man litigated and won all his cases giving him the Law license to practice Law.”

@_KAKUS: “We’ve so many intelligent people at home who can easily perform in a chosen field without stress. Sadly, those people didn’t get the opportunity to go to school to acquire a certificate and this man right here is a perfect example.”
