LSK Raises Alarm Over Quacks Working With Attorney General’s Office

The Law Society of Kenya President Eric Theuri now wants the Attorney General to act swiftly and close in those involved in the scandal after a raid at the premises of a quack advocate in Nairobi where victims revealed they were referred to him by officers from the State Law Office.

This cmes after law enforcement officers accompanied by LSK officials raided a cyber cafe at Embassy House, located opposite the AG’s Sheria House headquarters and recover a large number of legal files and official stamps.

Theuri, accompanied by Nairobi regional LSK representatives and member of the Rapid Action Team (RAT) Steve Mbugua, Teresia Wavinya and Gloria Kimani told the AG to weed out fraudulent officers who are giving his office a bad image.

The LSK President said the lawyers’ body is opposed to the introduction of legal services through Huduma centers which he said was likely to create a haven for masqueraders and conmen.

Mbugua said the raid at Embassy House exposed hundreds of fake legal transactions including divorce matters, affidavits and property transfers conducted through the suspect.

He warned members of the public against falling prey to such unprofessional lawyers since they will lose dearly.
