Two college students who worked in a Kayole clinic allegedly owned by fake doctor Mugo wa Wairimu were on Tuesday charged a fresh.

The two, Victor Gathiru alias Doctor Victor, and Risper Ouma, appeared in court together with the quack doctor and pleaded not guilty to the charges after the court allowed prosecution’s request to consolidate the cases.

The two students were released on a bail of Sh200,000 cash bail or a bond of Sh500,000 after prosecution failed to produce enough reason to continue holding them.

Mugo was however denied bail and he will remain in jail pending hearing on February 7, next year.

The three were charged with seven counts, among them operating Millan Health International Limited without a licence.

They were also charged with unlawfully carrying out the business of a pharmacist while not registered by the Pharmacy and Poisons Board.

Mugo was arrested by Flying Squad detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations after being on the run for nine days since following an exposé by NTV.
