A Nairobi court has found quack doctor Mugo wa Wairimu guilty of sedating a woman with the intention to rape her.
On Thursday, Milimani Chief Magistrate Wendy Micheni convicted Mugo of 10 of the 12 counts he had been charged with including sedating a woman with the intention to rape her, operating a hospital without a license, and acting like a doctor without qualifications.
The court determined that Mugo committed the offense while administrating a patient whom he had given four tablets which made the woman unconscious and lost her memory before sexually assaulting her.
A witness told the court that Mugo gave drugs to one of his patients, who then became unconscious and when she woke up, she found herself with no pants.
The court also found that Prestige Hospital, the clinic Mugo was running alongside a pharmacy, was not registered.
Magistrate Micheni ruled that the prosecution proved the case beyond reasonable doubt and ordered that a medical report be prepared and produced in court on Monday before the court hands over the sentence. The sentencing is set for November 21st.
Mugo is already serving 11 years imprisonment after a different court in 2020 found him guilty of operating a medical clinic without a license, operating an unregistered pharmacy, operating a medical laboratory without a license from the Kenya Medical Laboratory Practitioners, operating a medical clinic without registration, and practicing as an unregistered nurse.
