2 College Students Working for Mugo Wairimu Charged in Court


Two college students working for infamous quack doctor Mugo Wairimu on Thursday appeared in court and sent to remand.

Risper Auma Ogony and Victor Gathiru Kamunya were arraigned at the Milimani law court and charged with seven charges among them operating a clinic without a licence.

The judge hearing the case ordered that they be held until November 15 awaiting the pre-bail report.

According to court documents, Kamunya is a student at Kenya Medical Training College in Siaya County while Ms Ogony is pursuing a diploma in procurement at Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology in Nairobi.

The college students appear in court on 8/11/2018

Wairimu’s operations surfaced earlier in the week following an investigative journalism piece by NTV anchor Dennis Okari.

The ‘doctor’ is reportedly on the run with police launching a manhunt in Kayole were he allegedly runs a 24-hour health service.

To market his business, Mr Wairimu operated at least seven Facebook pages used to lure customers to his services. 

“I am back stronger, candid, daring and fearless. Like it or not but I’m back, my lessons fresh. Those who counted me out will be met with shock and disbelief,” his social media page read.

The expose came three years after Wairimu made headlines accused of raping a patient at his Githurai 44 clinic.

He was released from prison on an Sh5 Million bond after depositing a title deed in court.

In the meantime, the Health Laws Amendment Bill 2018 was passed by Parliament awaiting the president’s assent.

The bill has been a subject of debate because it will allow people without a degree in pharmacy to sit on the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, open chemists and import drugs.
