Quack doctor Mugo wa Wairimu has been sentenced to 29 years, six months in prison after he was found guilty of operating an illegal clinic and drugging patients before abusing them sexually.
According to the presiding Magistrate Wendy Muchemi, the controversial doctor is a danger to society, hence should serve a custodial punishment.
“He is a danger to the society instead of using the knowledge he says he acquired to improve society, he went ahead by purporting to be a gynecologist and administering drugs to them,” the judge ruled.
She said Mugo opted to abuse his qualified skills from the University of Nairobi to administer drugs so as to engage in sex with patients.
Early during the mitigation the controversial doctor said since his childhood, he was determined to serve Kenyans and that his sole objective was not to be in conflict with the law.
He further added that since he was locked in custody he has learned and lesson and that the court should consider a lenient sentence to allow him reunite with his family
“I assure this court that I have learnt a lesson and would urge the court to give a lenient sentence that will allow me join my family and to continue serving Kenyans Ans a law abiding citizen” Mugo said in his mitigation.
