STATEMENT ON BRIAN NJAGI MWENDA
The Council convened an emergency Council meeting yesterday the 12th October, 2023 at 5:00 P.M – 8:30 P.M to discuss the issue relating to the identity theft of one of our members known as BRIAN MWENDA NTWIGA of P.105/21249/22 by a masquerader who referred to himself as “BRIAN. N. MWENDA.” The meeting was prompted by the information we received from the Secretariat, that the issue has been undergoing internal investigations from the moment, the said Advocate BRIAN MWENDA NTWIGA reported the issue to the Secretariat as outlined below: –
a) On the 5th Day of August, 2022, Brian Mwenda Ntwiga was admitted to the Bar and the information supplied upon admission was picked from the JAMS system and his correct email address was captured and an Account opened for him in the Advocates portal;
b) We have since reached out to Advocate Brian Mwenda Ntwiga who confirmed that he had not applied for a practicing certificate since his admission, reason being that he had been working at the Office of the Attorney General and did not require a Practising Certificate. It was only until sometimes in September 2023 when he attempted to login in to the system and activate his profile with the intention of applying for his Practising Certificate that he realized he could not access his LSK Portal;
c) He promptly alerted the ICT personnel at the Secretariat vide an email on the 28th September 2023, who upon inquiry noted that the details in the system, more particularly his email address did not belong to him hence the reason why he could not access his Membership portal.
d) The ICT Department resolved the issue and commissioned an internal investigation to determine how the email address could have been changed in breach of the established protocols.
