, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 7 – Police have launched a manhunt for Dr Mugo wa Wairimu who is accused of allegedly sedating and raping women in his Nairobi clinics.
“The Inspector General of Police has ordered a manhunt for that doctor after the TV expose,” Police Spokesman George Kinoti told Capital FM News. “It is matter we are taking very, very seriously.”
All alleged victims have been urged to immediately report to the police to enable them acquire statements that will help in the investigations, after the shocking expose was aired on Sunday night sparking outrage from the public.
“A forensic investigation will be carried out in the matter,” Kinoti said on instructions of Boinnet, who earlier told Capital FM News that he had ordered for action.
In the TV footage, the man believed to be Dr Wairimu is seen sedating a woman on a hospital bed at the Prestige Healthcare, before engaging in a sexual act with her.
The unidentified woman is said to have gone to the hospital to seek gynaecological services.
Most women believed to have been raped by the doctor do not possibly know, because the act was committed on them after allegedly being sedated.
The manhunt was launched even as the doctor took to social media to tell off his accusers, while asking why it took so long to expose him.
“My enemies, political, business or otherwise have coalesced, in a most evil plot,” the accused doctor charged on Facebook. “I do not intend to use this forum to defend myself or give my side of the story.”
Curiously, it is the same doctor who rallied the public to watch the expose on Sunday through his Facebook page.
On Monday, there was tension in Githurai 44 as residents threatened to “bring down” the clinic over the doctor’s acts. The facility remained shut.
The clinic is located at a two-storey building which has residential houses on the first and second floors.
Police were deployed there to beef up security, after residents threatened to torch the entire building.
