Nairobi – Controversial gynecologist, Mugo wa Wairimu has been charged afresh with 12 charges including rape, masquerading as a gynecologist and operating an illegal clinic.
According to Citizen Digital, Wairimu also faced charges of administering unknown drugs, operating a Pharmacist without relevant license from the Pharmacy and Poisons Board as well as employing an unlicensed laboratory technologist.
Wairimu’s misconduct was exposed by Citizen TV last year following complaints that he was sedating his patients and then raping them at his clinic in Zimmerman, Nairobi.
The clip showed a naked woman lying on the doctor’s examination table and Mugo undressing her before climbing onto it and raping her.

He was arrested following a public outcry but denied all the 11 charges pressed against him in October last year, and was released on KES 5 million bond pending trial.
His case has however failed to take off following the persistent absence of his lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, whom he fired Monday and sought more time to hire a new one.
The Milimani Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo granted his request and set the case hearing for May 4 and 5 this year amid warnings against further adjournments, The Star reports.
