Kenyan Lawyer with strong ties to the Kenyan media and Kenya’s leading news paper (the daily Nation) has been indefinitely suspended from the practice of law in the State of Maryland for engaging in professional misconduct including mismanagement of clients money.
Ms. Regina Wanjiru Njogu who represented Uhuru Kenyatta in matters political in Washington DC forums and other activities while at the same time dancing and wining with CORD activists to benefit from both sides was found to have engaged in professional misconduct as a lawyer.
The misconduct alleged involves violations of Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct 1.8(a) and 8.4(a), (b) and (c); and the clerk of the court was further, ORDERED, to remove the name of Regina Wanjiru Njogu from the register of attorneys in the Court and certify that fact to the Client Protection Fund of the Bar of Maryland and all clerks of all judicial tribunals in this State pursuant to Maryland Rule 16-772(d).
Among other issues of concern is that she has been caught two times drunk driving and also got in trouble with the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission/Bar for a case in which she got involved in a business deal with a client by getting her client to register Regina’s car in her name so that Ms. Regina could save money on insurance. Other violations connected to the insurance fraud include causing the client to add the vehicle to the client’s insurance policy, for the negative impact on the client’s vehicle registration due to accidents and traffic citations incurred by Ms. Regina, which were attributed to the client. There were other violations as well.
When Regina was reached out for comment, she came up with a different explanation and posted her answer in the blogs. Stating that she has had bipolar disorder and blaming everything for it. Although known to drink heavily, Regina is known to be boisterous to people who know her and she appears to have met her match this time around. We hope she will continue to take her medicine if it’s true she is sincerely sick.
In another development, Ms. Regina Wanjiru Njogu has now also been suspended by the U.S migration board, U.S migration court and the U.S department of Homeland security. (See below attachments).
Ms. Regina Wanjiru Njogu is not the first lawyer to misbehave this way. Many lawyers all over the world are known to mismanage client funds and commit other sorts of misconduct and fraud. However, once caught by the bar, the punishment is severe. In this case, Ms. Njogu was in a company of close to 50 lawyers who had engaged in similar misconduct. Lawyers must understand that, citizens of the world deserve better and with good lawyers, the world would be a better place than it is today.
