In her ruling, Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku said there were strong competitive reasons for the accused not to be granted bail.
“I find that stringent bind terms alone cannot guarantee or safeguard the integrity of the trial process neither cannot guarantee the process of the trial,” Mutuku ruled.
She further said that there are compelling reasons that warrant her to deny Mugo bail.
He was arrested weeks ago while on the run in Gachie where he was found hiding ,Mugo hit the headlines when NTV aired an investigative report on him for operating a clinic in Kayole under the name Millan Health Care.
Two students were also arrested for operating the clinic in Kayole.
On Monday, police received information that a man resembling Mugo had been spotted in Ruaka dressed in women’s clothes. A search did not yield results.
Flying Squad officers and officials from the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board raided a clinic in Kayole where Mugo and others were alleged to be practising without proper documentation.
There was also a public outcry after NTV exposed Mugo at his new clinic where he is said to be engaging in unethical conduct.
In 2015, he was arrested and charged with various offences linked to operating an illegal clinic in Githurai 44, Nairobi and raping a woman he had allegedly sedated at Prestige Healthcare Clinic on November 1, 2014.
The prosecution accused Mugo of operating a pharmacy not registered with the Pharmacy and Poisons Board.
He was charged and released on a Sh1 million cash bail or a Sh5 million bond with a surety of a similar amount.
Quack Doctor Mugo Wa Wairimu famous for sedating and raping women is back, he says he is now back stronger,candid,fearless and fresh lessons to top it all.
Born James Mugo Ndichu ,Dr Mugo was exposed in 2015 but that has not stopped him from doing what he enjoys most,exploiting women,Three years after being exposed he is back in a different location with a new address and new phone numbers.
Initially he was operating in Githurai,he has now moved to Kayole.
NTV journalist Dennis Okari exposed him a second time and it is scary the levels he is going just to get money from patients.Mugo has now become dependent on drugs and is constantly injected with drugs that are more powerful than cocaine.
Mugo preys on powerless patients mostly women ,According to a woman who was lucky to escape from Mugo’s jaws of sexual abuse after she saw a job advert,the quack doctor used to rape women in the X ray room given that it is dark .
“The theater has two doors and the doors are always locked,he enters there and stays there for almost 30 minutes.Initially he used to rape women in the X ray room since its dark and easy to disguise while in there,Nowdays i hear he rapes women in the theater.”
Another victim says
“I went to see Dr Mugo because i needed medical assistance ,he asked me to lie on the bed so that he could examine me,before long he told me that i needed a jab on y hand.
5 minutes after the jab i started feeling dizzy and in my drowsiness i could see him talking but i could not grasp what he was saying.Before i finally blacked out i saw him unzipping his trousers and that is when he went ahead to rape me.
Due to the effect of the drug i could not fully understand what had happened to me,I decided to ask him and to my shock he did not deny it.adding that he did something that he was not supposed to do to a patient.”
In October 2015 Dr Mugo had been charged with rape,hiring non qualified lab technologists,illegal administering unknown drugs ,operating a pharmacist without a license .
He was arrested after members of the public identified him and alerted the police,defending himself he said
“The issue of rape I got used to it,there is no need of crying over spilt milk.Time will vindicate me.I cannot commit suicide because that happened,I will not stop being whom I am,Life cannot stop because that happened.”
According to Okari ,the quack doctor has seven pseudo Facebook accounts,and going by his posts he is ready for whatever blow life has thrown to him.
He called out those claiming he raped daring them to go report
Mugo also brags about how he procures abortion,despite it being illegal,and writing exorbitant bills something that was confirmed by the woman he tried to rape once
“He rapes women by admitting them and then write an exorbitant bill such as 70,000 or even 100,000 something he knows you cannot afford to pay.
He then goes ahead to sleep and use you till he feels he has ‘recovered ‘ his cash.”
In the video a woman who has come to procure an abortion is left humiliated after the doctor starts kissing her telling her that its supposed to numb the pain.When she reacts he quickly asks her if he was present when she was getting pregnant.
The police do not have sufficient evidence to press rape charges against Mugo wa Wairimu. Head of Serious Crimes Unit John Kariuki last evening appealed to the victims to report to the CID headquarters on Kiambu Road in Nairobi.
“Please come forward so we can get the evidence required in law,” he said. “We are at the risk of having no evidence to charge the suspect in court.”
Mathari Hospital psychiatrist J Kisivuli yesterday said Wairimu is mentally sound and fit to face police investigations and possibly trial.
The suspect was taken to the hospital for examination on Monday. Kariuki said none of the women who spoke to the media claiming to have been raped at the clinic have recorded statements, so police are in a dilemma.
Investigators Tuesday visited the Prestige Clinic in Githurai 44 to gather more evidence. The visit aimed to compare the clinic’s facilities with the images captured on camera of a man sedating and raping his patients.
Police interrogated Wairimu but are yet to formally record his statement. He was to record statements by last evening after the doctors certified he is mentally okay. Kariuki said only two victims – a woman whose title deed the doctor is said to have confiscated over unpaid bills and another woman who claims to have been sedated – have spoken out.
The second victim (name withheld) said she was sedated but does not recall being raped by Wairimu. If the evidence against him is insufficient, police can only press charges of indecently assaulting his patients. The maximum jail term for this offense is one year.
Rape cases require forensic investigations so police can prove beyond reasonable doubt to secure a conviction.
A Nairobi court has remanded’rapist doctor’ Mugo Wa Wairimu for 14 more days as investigations into the allegations leveled against him continue.
James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo wa Wairimu appeared at Milimani law courts on Friday morning where the prosecution team applied to the courts to hold him longer as they conduct more tests on him and his victims.
Senior Principal magistrate Charity Oluoch said that Mugo will appear in court after police have gathered enough evidence and he will be detained at an undisclosed location for security reasons.
He is linked to a video that aired on Citizen TV Sunday night showing a gynecologist raping a sedated patient at the Prestige Health Care clinic in Githurai 44.
Mugo was arrested Thursday in Limuru town while having breakfast after a tip-off from members of the public. By Thursday, four women had recorded statements on allegations of rape against Wairimu.
Police have arrested fake doctor Mugo Wa Wairimu at a Limuru Hotel. Mugo came into the limelight after Citizen TV highlighted the ‘Doctored Abuse’ story on Sunday night, showing him working as an unqualified gynecologist, sedating and raping his patients.
Sources reveal that the ‘fake gynecologist’ has been detained at the DC’s office in Limuru before being handed over to CID for further questioning.
Mugo revealed on social media that he had finally been arrested and was in the hands of police on his Facebook page with the photo below.
The rogue doctor has been operating two clinics in Nairobi’s Githurai and Zimmerman estates and has been on the run since Citizen TV aired the story. He still maintains that he is innocent of all the allegations and also posted the message below
He went ahead to accuse the man in the photo below of being behind the malicious allegations calling him “the devil incarnate.”
