NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 8 – People with information regarding the alleged sedation and rape by ‘doctor’ Mugo wa Wairimu were on Tuesday urged to record statements with the police.
Kasarani police chief Robinson Mboloi told Capital FM News that none of the alleged victims had recorded statements with the police to aid the ongoing investigations.
The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentist Board also said it had not received any allegations of rape.
A member of the board, Were Onyino said they could only pursue Wairimu for operating illegally since he was not licensed to operate as a doctor.
He said the board had received a complaint which led them to order Wairimu to shut down his clinic on June 17 this year for operating illegally.
“We received a complaint about patients being detained there; that is the complaint we are aware about, but other issues of diagnosis and unprofessional conduct within that facility, we have not received any as yet,” he said.
Onyino said the only way to press rape charges will be for people who had received services at the clinic and were aware of such misconduct to report to the police or even record statements with the board.
“All the patients who sought services from that clinic and feel they were misdiagnosed or something, then they should be able to come to the board and make a report, then together with the police and other regulatory body then we should be able to come up with a comprehensive charge sheet,” Onyino explained.
On Monday, police were looking for Wairimu following a television expose in which he was allegedly video recorded sedating and raping a patient at his Prestige Healthcare Clinic in Githurai 44.
Residents on Sunday night threatened to set ablaze buildings which house two of his clinics in Githurai forcing police to keep watch to protect other tenants occupying the buildings.
