Police arrest two women masquerading as lawyers in Kasarani raid

The suspects are set for arraignment in court to face charges of impersonation and forgery of legal documents.

The LSK Rapid Action team led by Stephen Mbugua noted the change of tact by fake lawyers who have now resorted to operating in residential areas.
Mbugua said various transaction documents were recovered from the duo, including property transfers and wills and warned members of the public to exercise caution.
The LSK cautioned fellow members of the legal profession against enlisting unqualified individuals for legal tasks, saying they risk facing disciplinary measures including deregistration.
