Brian Mwenda, a young individual posing as a lawyer, has been apprehended after successfully representing clients in 26 cases before High Court Judges, Magistrates, and Court of Appeal Judges, ultimately emerging victorious in all of them.
This startling revelation came to light as Facts East Africa shared the story, shedding light on the audacious charade that this Kenyan man had perpetuated over a significant period. Notably, even the presiding judges had no cause to doubt his professionalism until his recent arrest.
In their report, Facts East Africa stated, “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.”
Photographs circulating online depict Mwenda attired in a lawyer’s traditional black gown and wig, adding to the veneer of legitimacy he had skillfully crafted.
This extraordinary tale has sparked widespread discussions and debates, with some suggesting that Mwenda should be granted a license to practice law, given his remarkable track record in the courtroom.
It is a testament to his abilities that he managed to outperform professionally trained lawyers, all while lacking the official credentials to practice law.
