A fire victim told a court on Friday told how fake doctor Mugo wa Wairimu operated and left her handicapped.
Mr. Wairimu, who is accused of being a fake doctor was in 2015 accused of running an unlicensed clinic and raping his patients.
The patient, Cecilia Wangari, told Milimani Law Courts how she deposited a title deed and an additional Ksh.83,000 raised from a Harambee to secure discharge from Prestige Healthcare in Githurai 44, Nairobi. This was after she was unable to pay accumulated treatment bill amounting to Ksh.515,000.
Ms Wangari, while giving her testimony, regretted the incident, wishing she was attended to at a public health facility.
She recalled how she ended up at wa Wairimu’s facility after she was assaulted by a scorned lover and neighbours rushed her to the nearest health facility.
Milimani court Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi further heard that Mugo operated on her but her situation never improved.
“He advised me to be going for operation until my bent fingers got straight,” she said. After a while, she doubted his professionalism and decided to visit Kenyatta National Hospital but it was too late.
She showed the court her scars and her maimed hand; three fingers on the left hand are permanently deformed.
Wangari’s testimony came up during the hearing of a case in which wa Wairimu is accused of operating a health care centre and practising as a doctor without qualifications.
He is also facing other allegations of raping his patients; the charge which the court has since heard from witnesses.
The businessman, who was charged in 2015 is out on bond terms. The case will be heard further on March 6, 2018.
