Fake doctor Mugo wa Wairimu has been sentenced to three years in prison, or to pay a fine of Sh 1.4 million.
Nairobi Senior Resident Magistrate Martha Nanzushi delivered the ruling on Wednesday, October 28, against Wairimu.
The convict was found guilty of running a medical clinic without a license.
He was also accused of unlawfully running an unregistered pharmacy and managing a medical laboratory without a license from the Kenya Medical Laboratory Practitioners among others.
Wairimu was arrested on September 10, 2015, at a Limuru hotel while on the run after he was exposed on national Television allegedly raping a female patient at his Prestige Clinic in Githurai.
According to NTV, the dubious doctor may have worked at the Chiromo Mortury in 1996 if a blog suspected to be written by him is anything to go by.
In the blog post, he recalls making a fortune after selling a luxury casket to an unintended buyer and even chopping the legs of a body in order to fit in the coffin.
It was, however, established that the quack doctor was a nursing student at the University of Nairobi (UoN).
Mugo is confirmed to have graduated from the UoN on November 27, 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
He was admitted to the School of Nursing at the university in 1996, Citizen TV reports.
The Nursing Council of Kenya, however, confirmed that Mugo, who was accused of sedating and raping patients at his clinic in Githurai, did not follow the Council’s procedure outlined for one to be registered as a qualified nurse.
