The Law Society of Kenya has slammed politicians supporting Brian Mwenda, a man accused of impersonating an advocating the High Court.
Speaking on Saturday, LSK President Eric Theuri raised concern about why the suspect has received much support from Kenyans yet he has committed an offence.
He said they have handled several cases of imposters being dealt with procedurally according to the law but wondered why the case of Brian Mwenda has been so controversial.
“This is the first time this character is receiving support from politicians and institutions such as Cotu. This leaves us with a question, who exactly is this Brian Mwenda? Why is he getting support for criminal activities from institutions and persons who have previously served public office and understand the need to maintain the rule of law?” he posed.
