Mugo wa Wairimu, the quack doctor who is at the Center of controversy has money, connections in Jubilee and key board warriors on line.
When he failed to appear for a Court hearing in 2016, months after his arrest in 2015- the judge ordered revoke of his bail and guess who came to his aid.
Millan Health International, the health facility ridden with claims concerning Mugo’s illicit activities, saved him from spending time in remand.
Armed with a letter from Millan, Mugo told the court he had failed to show up because he was unwell.
The letter, which was admitted into court records, claimed that Mugo had been admitted at the health facility on August 9, 2016, suffering from a condition that was detected in 2000 at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
Mugo, who is facing 15 criminal counts in connection with operating Prestige Health care Clinic in Githurai 44, remained free on bail.
Three witnesses have testified in the case that gripped the nation’s attention.
The first prosecution witness, identified as ‘Zoe’ (not real name), told the court that she knew about Prestige from a flier she collected in September 2014.
The court heard that Zoe had been experiencing painful monthly periods and wanted to have a pelvic scan. She called the numbers on the flier and allegedly talked to Mugo, who booked her to attend the clinic on a weekend.
Zoe testified that she had a ghastly experience when she swallowed strange pills and ended up without her undergarments. “…he told me to open my mouth and I was hesitant but he assured me it was just an examination. I was given around three to four tablets and the next thing I remember I woke up in a strange room. I was by in a bed sheet.
“I uncovered myself and found out I did not have my underpants, pad and tampon,” she testified. According to court records, police threw her out when she went to report the incident, claiming she had weak evidence.
But after Mugo was exposed, the court heard, the officers called and directed that she record a fresh statement.
Ever since his last arrest, he was using at least 15 SIM cards to communicate with different people.
They said he had been in touch with a criminal lawyer. When The Standard contacted the lawyer, he said Mugo had called seeking his services.
“He asked me to represent him but I declined the request,” said the lawyer, who asked not to be named. Police said they had asked the lawyer to help facilitate Mugo’s safe surrender but he had turned them down.
“He cannot stay in a marriage for a month. He only stays with a woman long enough for fun,” one of his friends say.
A far cry from the medical profession, Mugo’s father runs a kiosk next to the primary school his famous son attended while his mother tends to the family shamba in Dagoretti.
The relative who spoke to reporters also revealed that Mugo attended Dagoretti High School where he sat for the KCSE exam.
“He studied from home for almost one year and proceeded to Form Four where he managed to score a very strong B+ and was admitted at the University of Nairobi’s School of Medicine and graduated in 2000,” the relative purported.
Due diligence investigations, however, established that Mugo was not on the 2000 graduation list.
