A Nairobi Court pushed the trial of viral alleged “fake lawyer” Brian Mwenda Njagi to November 28.
This is after the prosecution prayed for an adjournment stating that they were yet to record statements from their witnesses.
“Your honor, we are not ready for a pretrial today as the investigating officer is yet to conclude recording statements of the witnesses,” said the state prosecutor.
The DPP prayed for 14 days to be ready for pretrial.
Brian’s lawyer Danstan Omari opposed the 14 days and stated that the matter should start as soon as possible since it was a politically engineered case given the fact that LSK is about to vote in new leadership to the noble profession.
“We would like to have this matter start as soon as possible before the February elections by the Law Society of Kenya,” Omari told the court.
“We also oppose the application by the prosecution that the investigations are still ongoing. The complainant witnesses should record their statements in two days. This is a matter of public interest.”
The magistrate agreed with the prosecution and granted them 14 days to record statements.
The case will be mentioned on November 28.
