A Nairobi court has allowed police to detain quack doctor James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo wa Wairimu for 10 days pending completion of investigations into a case against him.
Mugo was presented at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi on Wednesday afternoon for operating an illegal clinic.
Senior Resident Magistrate Bernard Nzakyo granted the prosecution’s request for more time to detain Mugo who was arrested on Tuesday evening in Gachie, Kiambu County after being on the run for about two weeks.
He was arrested by officers from the Flying Squad Unit and locked up at the Pangani Police Station pending arraignment.
The fake gynaecologist had in 2015 been arrested after Citizen TV exposed him for running an illegal clinic and allegedly raping sedated female patients. He was charged in court and released on bail.
Two weeks ago, NTV once again exposed him and his personnel two of whom have since been arrested.
Victor Gathiru Kamunya alias Doctor Victor and Ms Risper Ouma Ogony were arraigned before Milimani Law Courts Magistrate Martha Mutuku on Thursday last week.
They were charged with illegally operating a pharmacy and a medical laboratory without registration and licence from the Kenya Medical Laboratory and Technologists Board.
