Nobody wants to associate him/herself with a rogue personality. Mugo Wairimu hasmade headlines for all the wrong reasons since 2015. More shocking revelations were made about him by NTV in an expose dubbed #QuackClinic.
In October, 2015, Dr Wairimu ,real name James Mugo Ndichu, was first charged with rape, illegally administering unknown drugs and operating as a pharmacist without a license from the Pharmacy and Poisons Board.
The nurses union has now distanced itself from Mugo wa Wairimu. Speaking to journalists at KNH, Kenya national union of nurses secretary general Seth Panyako said Wairimu does not appear in their register.
“We want to say as nurses very categorically and strongly that the person is not a nurse,” Panyako said on Tuesday.
“We disassociate ourselves from that incident and that fellow,” he added.
James Mugo Ndichu, alias Doctor Mugo wa Wairimu, returned to the headlines three years after he was charged for allegedly sedating and raping his patients at another unlicensed clinic in Githurai 44 and masquerading as a gynaecologist.
Panyako has called on the authorities to take stern action against the “fake” doctor.
“We cannot have criminals operating as medical personnel. Members of the public need to be protected from such unscrupulous people,” he said.
In an investigative piece by NTV, Wairimu is seen giving a diagnosis seemingly drunk. He then proceeds to demand Sh800 for drugs that cost only Sh40.
The fake doctor also extorts Sh23,000 from a woman whose daughter had just procured an abortion in the pretext that she was receiving treatment for a stomach upset.
He first made headlines in 2015 when a video appeared to show a man assaulting a patient who was apparently sedated.
He has previously been charged in a Nairobi court with obtaining Sh100,000 by false pretences.
Many Kenyans were shocked at learning that Mugo Wairimu is still free and infact still duping unsuspecting Kenyans while also putting many lives in Danger.
Here are some of their reactions:
Great job NTV in exposing the #QuackClinic. I personally worked with Victims, Patients, DCI and DPP Tobiko’s office to have Mugo Wa Wairimu arrested and arraigned in court. When money changed hand, DPP’s Jacinta Nyamosi exposed victims and DCI’s Andolo Munga arrested me.

The poor and underprivileged always pay the price for a government that doesn’t seem to care about anything more than taxing them or getting their votes. #QuackClinic

Because of the Love this man Mugo wa wairimu has with Medicine I think he should be Locked in Kamiti prison for 7 years and instead of federal punishment he should be in class studying medicine with a must pass… Maybe one day he’ll save a life #QuackClinic
