• Kenyans have been sharing their thoughts on social media after it was revealed that Mwenda was disguising himself as a lawyer in Kenya.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigation in Nairobi on Tuesday grilled Brian Mwenda Njagi a young Kenyan accused of impersonating a High Court lawyer.
He presented himself there following summonses by the police who took his statement as part of the probe into claims he impersonated.
He has been making headlines worldwide.
Law Society of Kenya president Eric Theuri said he was aware he was at DCI.
“We are going to ensure that he faces the full force of the Law. The evidence gathered so far points to several cases of forgery and identity theft.”
“Further inquiries are ongoing. We are working closely with the DCI team to conduct thorough and extensive investigations. This case will be a deterrent for future masqueraders,” he said.
Many people have been talking about him in the past week.
Kenyans have been sharing their thoughts on social media after it was revealed that Mwenda was disguising himself as a lawyer in Kenya.
Some videos of Mwenda in court, where he was making legal arguments and representing clients, have appeared online.
One of the most talked-about parts of this story was the claim that Mwenda won all 26 cases he was involved in.
Many people believed this and thought of him as a hero.
However, Theuri has rejected the idea that Mwenda won those 26 cases.
They claim he is a fake lawyer and should be arrested for pretending to be someone he’s not.
Some lawyers are angry with Mwenda for pretending to be a lawyer, but others, including former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and COTU secretary-general Francis Atwoli, want to protect him.
Mwenda’s case has prompted the police to crack down on fake lawyers.
The Director of Public Prosecutions, Renson Mulele Ingonga, has also called on the police to investigate the matter and arrest Mwenda.
