In Summary
  • Mr Mugo once again hit the headlines after an expose on NTV on Tuesday revealed that the quack doctor was still operating a clinic in Kayole despite being caught on tape sexually assaulting a sedated woman inside his Githurai clinic in 2015.

  • There are a total of 26 people in court facing various charges relating to medical malpractice.

Nairobi MCAs have taken the executive to task over fake doctor James Mugo Ndichu, asking how he was issued with a licence to operate various clinics across the city despite being found unqualified.

This comes as the ward reps launched their own investigations into the operations of the quack medic popularly known as Mugo wa Wairimu.

Nairobi County Assembly Women Caucus chairperson, Doris Kanario, demanded an explanation from the health department on how Mr Mugo was allowed to operate in the city.

The nominated MCA also asked the executive to provide details of all the licensed clinics in the county and whether they have been certified fit to be providing medical services to patients.

ILLEGAL CLINICS

She revealed how city inspectorate officers who went to inspect clinics in Kayole and Githurai were denied entry and did nothing about it.

“We want to know what measures the county executive has put in place to ensure that no clinics are operating in the county illegally. It is worrying how a quack doctor could be operating so many unlicensed clinics in the county despite complaints from members of the public concerning abuse and blatant illegalities including abortions, rape of patients among others,” said Ms Kanario while requesting for a statement from the Assembly’s Health Services committee yesterday.
