According to the report, Mwenda was able to convincingly pose as a lawyer for a long time, and even judges were not doubtful of his abilities until he was arrested recently.

Kenyan authorities have arrested Brian Mwenda, a fraudulent professional lawyer who was posing as a lawyer registered with the Supreme Court of Kenya.

He successfully represented and won 26 cases in front of High Court Judges, Magistrates, and Court of Appeal Judges before his apprehension," reported Facts East Africa on X.

A user named Nungua Burnaboy expressed, "So, he won 26 cases against lawyers who have attended law school, yet he is the one facing punishment? Instead, those lawyers should be punished for allowing someone who hasn't attended law school to win cases against them."

Mfecane, another user, stated that the man should be awarded an honorary law degree.

TheTraderInYou responded, stating that they are confident that he will find a way to defend himself and avoid being arrested.

Another user with the Twitter handle @_KAKUS expressed that there are numerous intellectually gifted individuals within our society who have the ability to excel in their chosen professions effortlessly. Unfortunately, these talented individuals were not granted the opportunity to attend school and obtain a formal certification. The user pointed out a specific man as a prime example of this situation.

According to The Virginia Project, even though he lacks official credentials, his impressive record of 26 wins in major league play proves that he is genuine and not a fraud.
