Quack Doctor Mugo wa Wairimu, Two Employees Charged Afresh



Infamous fake doctor James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo wa Wairimu and his two employees have been charged afresh for operating an illegal clinic.

Appearing before Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku, Mugo was charged alongside his two employees Victor Gathiru and Risper Ouma on Tuesday.

The trio pleaded not guilty to the charges after the court allowed a request by the prosecution to consolidate the cases.

They were charged with running a pharmacy without a registration certificate from the Pharmacy and Poisons Board as well as operating an unlicensed clinic, Millan Health International Limited in Kayole, Nairobi.

Gathiru and Ouma were further charged with carrying out the business of a pharmacist in a premise not registered by the board.

In the final count, they were charged with operating a medical laboratory without registration and licence from the Kenya Medical Laboratory and Technologists Board.

Senior Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku ordered that Mugo be detained pending hearing on February 7th, 2019.

His co-accused have been released on earlier bail terms of Sh200,000 each.
