Brian Mwenda Njagi appeared to be a proficient advocate, impressing many with his legal acumen and command over courtroom proceedings. He became especially notorious after representing high-profile clients and taking center stage in important legal events.

The Revelation

The Law Society of Kenya (LSK), specifically its Nairobi Branch caution the public about Mwenda’s credentials or lack thereof:

“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…”

The Nairobi Branch of the Law Society of Kenya dropped a bombshell about Brian’s authenticity. Taking to the widely-renowned platform now termed X, the official statement was unequivocal.

“Notice: It has been brought to the attention of the LSK Nairobi Branch through the Rapid Action Team (RAT), that the above-pictured person has been presenting and conducting himself as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and a member of LSK Nairobi Branch. 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. Members are encouraged to share any information of any person masquerading as an Advocate for the necessary action.”

Mwenda’s Unbelievable Journey

  • 26 Court Cases: Brian, against all odds, remarkably won 26 court cases. This isn’t just unprecedented for a fake lawyer, it’s astounding for many genuine ones.
  • Professional Deception: As per Wikipedia’s article on Legal Malpractice, Brian’s deceit was dangerous, both legally and morally.
  • Public Response: Kenyans everywhere have reacted with a mixture of shock, admiration, and disdain. Some commend his audacity, while others decry the system that allowed such a hoax.

For comparison, in 2019, John Doe from Nigeria posed as a medical doctor for six months before being apprehended. Like Mwenda, he enjoyed a brief period of professional success before his eventual downfall.

LSK’s Stern Response

Speaking to Citizen Digital, LSK President Eric Theuri confirmed the allegations and revealed their proactive steps:

“We have invited the DCI to track this person and arrest him for impersonation,” stated Theuri.

The saga took a deeper turn when Omwanza Ombati, a seasoned attorney, highlighted the potential compromise of the LSK Portal.

“The data within the LSK Portal, where members entrust critical information, has seemingly been compromised,” Omwanza pointed out on X.

Mwenda’s Public Persona

Videos of Brian circulated on X, revealing his active role in significant legal events. Shockingly, one clip showed him representing a high-profile client: Maina Njenga, the former Mungiki leader. His aptitude left many, including seasoned Kenyan legal practitioners, in awe.

“There are quite a number of facts that are not in alignment…” Mwenda confidently contested during a live court session.

Another video, dug up by eagle-eyed netizens, showcases a passionate Brian vocally confronting peers during an LSK Annual General Meeting.
