The lawyer is accused that on February 10, 2022 at Bigambo & Bigambo advocates office in Westlands, with intent to deceive, embossed a false stamp impression in the name of advocate and commissioner of oaths Grace Wambui on a supporting affidavit.

It was for the purpose of commissioning by purporting it to be a genuine stamp impression of Wambui.

He was charged with a second count that on the same date, he forged a signature on the supporting affidavit in the name of Ms Wambui.

He was further charged that on February 11, he fraudulently uttered a forged electronic record through anti-corruption and economic crime division, purporting it to be a genuine application commissioned by Ms Wambui.

The lawyer pleaded for lenient bond terms. He was released on a cash bail of Sh100,000. The case will be mentioned after two weeks.
