Quack doctor Mugo wa Wairimu has been denied bail by a Nairobi court. Wairimu who denied the charges will remain behind bars until the conclusion of his case.
He was charged with operating a clinic without a valid certificate among other counts.
He had asked the court to release him on bail pending the hearing of his application.
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.
