DAILY POST: ORENGO in deep trouble as AG PAUL KIHARA gives prof QURESHI letter to practice as an Advocate of Kenya – MWILU is going to jail



Friday
December 7, 2018 – 
Attorney General, Paul Kihara, has finally allowed Queens Counsel Prof
Khawar Qureshi to practice as an advocate in Kenya after he was hired by the
Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji.
Prof Qureshi was hired by
Haji to prosecute Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu who is facing corruption
related charges.
On Thursday, Mwilu’s
lawyer, James Orengo, requested the court to bar Prof Qureshi because he is not
an advocate of the High Court of Kenya or a member of the Law Society of Kenya.
But on Thursday, Kihara
removed the barrier and gave Qureshi the papers to practice as an Advocate in
Kenya.
Kihara also said the
UK-based Counsel is required to pay an admission fee as may be prescribed by
the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary.
The AG also said Qureshi
is also subject to the disciplinary process as applies to a foreign advocate
under the LSK Act during the course of the limited practice in Kenya.
