Nakuru - Women in the country have been advised to shun male gynecologists as one way of avoiding sexual harassment during medical examinations.
Nakuru women representative, Mary Mbugua said that hundreds of women are unknowingly being sexually harassed by rogue male gynecologists like Mugo wa Wairimu.
Citing the recent expose on Citizen television where a doctor was seeing sexually harassing a sub-conscious female patient, Mbugua said that there are so many unreported cases of women who have harassed sexually by male doctors.

“There are so many cases of women who get sexually harassed by male doctors and these cases are so rampant in private clinics. I want to call on women to desist from seeking services from such rogue male doctors. Let them go for female gynecologists instead,” said Mbugua.
“If you have to go to a male gynecologist then you better go in the company of your husband because some doctors are like wild animals and they can do horrible things to you in the name of examination,” she added.
She called on the medical board to up their game and close backstreet clinics where she said women were being literally sexually molested in the name of medical examinations.
