Amid the controversy surrounding Brian Mwenda, the man accused of impersonating a lawyer in Kenya, his father has stepped forward to shed light on his son’s academic journey and qualifications.
In a video shared on Facebook by SamsonN-Hustler, Mwenda’s father confirmed that Brian attended the Kenya School of Law (KSL) and is indeed a qualified lawyer.
During the interview, Mwenda’s father provided a detailed account of his son’s educational path, spanning from primary school to university.
He stated that Brian pursued a diploma course in criminology, which eventually led him to Strathmore University in 2017.
Brian graduated from Strathmore in 2020, and in 2021, he joined the Kenya School of Law, completing his studies in December 2022.
According to Brian’s father, his son began representing clients in court as early as January 2023.
His initial case involved representing a family member, during which he filed an application for appeal.
Regrettably, there was no response to his application. Despite this setback, Brian continued to practice law in Nairobi until recent allegations emerged regarding his qualifications.
Mwenda’s father expressed confidence in his son’s innocence and professional competence, highlighting that Brian has successfully won 26 cases thus far.
He firmly believes that these victories are a testament to his son’s education and qualification as a lawyer.
He went on to emphasize that Brian has consistently maintained that the claims against him are baseless, entrusting the legal system to deliver justice.
In response to the accusations against Brian, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) issued a statement strongly refuting the claims made by Njagi, the individual allegedly masquerading as a lawyer. LSK President Eric Theuri denied the assertion that Brian Mwenda Njagi had won 26 cases in various courts across the country.
“Allegations that the masquerader Brian Mwenda won 26 cases is false and misleading. There is no factual basis to support the misleading claims. Efforts to apprehend him are in high gear and we are optimistic that he will be brought to book,” Theuri posted on his official X account.
