Inside Life: Arrested Fake Lawyer Who Has Won All 26 Cases

The Nairobi Branch of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has detained a guy who pretended to be a lawyer and won 26 cases in various Kenyan courts

The Rapid Action Team (RAT) of the LSK apprehended the individual after receiving complaints from the general public about his fraudulent actions. However, his identity has not been made public

The individual had been representing clients successfully before High Court Judges, Magistrates, and Court of Appeal Judges while posing as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and a member of the LSK Nairobi Branch. Even in front of the court on television, he had defended the former Mungiki chief

However, his luck ran out when the RAT checked his history and discovered that he was not an advocate and lacked a Kenyan law practice license

The man was neither a member of the LSK Nairobi Branch nor an advocate for the High Court of Kenya, the LSK Nairobi Branch claimed in a statement on their X account

“It has been brought to the attention of the LSK Nairobi Branch through the Rapid Action Team (RAT), 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,” the statement said in part

The man was detained and brought to the RAT’s main office for additional investigation. The LSK Nairobi Branch advised the general public to exercise caution and to confirm the credentials of anyone claiming to be a lawyer before hiring them. Additionally, they advised anyone who had fallen for the bogus lawyer’s tricks to come forward or go to the nearest police station
