, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 11 – A Nairobi court has allowed the police to detain Mugo wa Wairimu for 14 days to enable them finalise investigations into allegations of sedating and raping women at his clinics.
The man whose real name is James Mugo Ndichu, was presented before Senior Principal Magistrate Charity Oluoch Friday morning following his arrest in Limuru on Thursday.
In their application, police indicated that they had not completed their investigations and needed 30 days because he was detained on Thursday after a weeklong manhunt.
Police were granted 14 days after Mugo’s lawyer protested that the 30 days sought by the prosecution was too much.
Four witnesses have already recorded statements with the police at the CID headquarters with more expected to come forward up after his arrest.
Mugo was arrested in Limuru after evading a police dragnet since Sunday when the alleged sex scandal in his clinic was exposed by Citizen Television.
During the period, police will be seeking to extract more information from his mobile phone records, reports from the Communications Authority of Kenya, the cyber crime unit and the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board.
Mugo is expected back in court on September 25, 2015.
