Milimani Courts Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi has directed that convicted fake doctor Mugo Wairimu be taken to Kenyatta National Hospital for medical attention.
Wairimu was appearing in court for hearing of a rape case against him. Last October, he was sentenced to 11 years in prison after being found guilty of operating an unregistered pharmacy, operating a medical lab without registration and license, operating a medical clinic without a registration and license, and practicing as an unregistered and unlicensed person.
Wairimu had alleged that authorities at Ruiru Prisons, where he is serving his sentence, have ignored his pleas for medical attention. Andayi ordered that he be back to court on March 29.
In the earlier case, Mugo was fined Ksh20,000 (or serve two years in prison), Ksh200,000 (or a similar prison term), and Ksh50,000 (or 9 months imprisonment). This applied to the three counts, respectively.
In the fourth, fifth and six counts, Mugo was fined Ksh500,000 (3-year sentence), Ksh150,00 (or 6-months) and Ksh500,000 (or a three years), respectively. The court ruled that the sentences run concurrently.
In a 2015 TV expose, Wairimu was depicted as a fake doctor who also allegedly sexually abused his patients at the Prestige Hospital in Githurai.
