She is a notable lawyer who handles conveyance, the transfer of ownership in property such as homes from one person to another.

Mbeneka also practises in intellectual property law, which deals with issues such as copyright and trademark, as well as in family and civil law, dealing with matters such as successions.

Her interest in the law is well linked to the fight for multiparty politics and democracy. Growing up in the 80s she occasionally witnessed police visiting her neighbourhood to arrest James Orengo who had become a person of interest for his outspoken views on democracy and governance.
