Here is why Mugo wa Wairimu was never jailed two years ago

Quack doctor James Mugo Ndichu, alias Mugo Wa Wairimu, was released two years ago after witnessed shied away from testifying in the case.

He had been charged with sexually assaulting a sedated patient while posing as a medical doctor

He was further charged with illegally administering unknown drugs, operating as a pharmacist without a license and hiring an unlicensed laboratory technician.

Pleas by  Kasarani OCPD Robinson Moloi for witnesses and victims to come forward and record statements with police proved unfruitful.


The trial collapsed after prosecution failed to avail the statements of witnesses in the alleged crime.

Mugo graduated with a Bachelor in Science degree in Nursing at the University of Nairobi in 2000. He is not a registered as a Doctor with the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board.

Mugo grabbed media headlines in September 2014 after a sensational video clip showing a man sexually abusing a sedated woman at the Prestige Health Care clinic in Githurai went viral and sparked public outrage on social media.

On socialo media, Kenyans were livid after NTV’s exposé on Mugo’s latest activities.

“#Mugo #Wairimu It is so disheartening to imagine that there are human beings who exist to do harm in exchange for money. It was so painful and traumatizing to imagine what all those women who have been through his hands have gone through. #QuackClinic,” tweeted VN_nyakaingi.

“@DCI_Kenya is this mugo wa wairimu untouchable,” asked Duke82.

“Why is Mugo Wairimu walking scot-free? There is already enough evidence. If the government can’t deal with him, the public will or should,” said MarvinGakunyi.


“Many Kenyans will blame Mugo the Vampire but will not blame their political choices for the rot in public services. Even more interesting, no serious action will be taken against such,” wrote Mwaurah.

“The Making of a Quack Nation……. It all starts with a Quack leaders then it cascades to quack doctors Mugo wa Wairimu , fake cops, fake products! We even have Quack corpses (Remember Dr. Njue the government chief pathologist) yet we have regulatory authorities,” commented mwangid.

“I fail to understand how quack dactors like mugo are still free out there .tulikosea wapi wakenya?” asked MartinAlyona.

“@SicilyKariuki this is as a result of failure on your part as a Ministry. How is it that we have Fake Doctors, Fake Medicines, and Fake Medical Centres and yet you continue to operate as a Ministry? Dr Mugo Wairimu has exposed the failures of your Ministry,” stated mathenge_wahome.

“Show me Mugo Wa Wairimu’s friends and I’ll tell you their character. That old saying is quite clear in the Picture. Mugo should be quarantine and the best place is either in Kamiti Prison Or Hell We Must purify Our environment during this short period of Handshake,” said adedeadedeh.
