Mugo Wa Wairimu has been sentenced to 29 Years of imprisonment after he was found guilty of running a medical clinic illegally.
According to Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo, Mugo “is a danger to the society and ought to be kept away for a long time”.
“He abused the knowledge he acquired on medical and health science to harm hapless women,” the magistrate said.
According to the court, Mugo abused his qualified skills from the University of Nairobi to administer drugs so as to sexually molest patients.
Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo while delivering the ruling stated that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that Mugo was guilty of the charges against him.
“The sexual molestation charge cannot stand in any court of law as the prosecution failed to prove the three main ingredients of forcible intercourse beyond a reasonable doubt to warrant a conviction,” the chief magistrate indicated.
“The court required oral evidence from the alleged victim, sufficient circumstantial evidence and DNA samples test which were never provided in court by the prosecution,” she ruled.
His story first came to light in September 2015, when Citizen TV aired an investigative piece on his clinic, which was then located in Kayole.
He was accused of sedating and raping his female patients at his illegal clinics in Githurai and Zimmerman estates.
He was arrested, charged, and before being released on bail.
Three years later (2018), NTV aired another expose revealing that the quack doctor had not changed his ways following his first arrest. Instead, he changed his location.
While Wairimu advertised himself as a professional gynecologist, the Kenya Obstetrical and Gynecological Society (KOGS) refused to recognize him, stating that “we should not allow patients to suffer at the hands of quacks.”
