Fake doctor Mugo wa Wairimu charged with rape

Controversial “doctor” James Mugo Ndichu, alias Mugo wa Wairimu, has been charged with rape.

Mr Ndichu was on Friday charged with one count of rape, administering a sedative and 10 counts of operating unregistered clinics.

The prosecution opposed his release on bail, which the court will determine on Monday.

The accused, who owns several clinics in Nairobi, is alleged to have sedated and raped a woman in one of his clinics.

He already has a separate case of practising without authority that is pending determination at the Makadara Law Courts.

Mr Ndichu has been in police custody since September 11 after his sensational arrest, sparked by public outrage over a video showing a man sexually abusing a sedated woman in a hospital examination table.
