According to Mugo, at the time of arrest, it could be impossible to practice as a doctor since he had not completed his internship and hence had not graduated.

Mr James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo Wa Wairimu

Mugo Wa Wairimu has accused the Police of arresting ‘the wrong person’.

Mr James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo Wa Wairimu appeared at Milimani Law Courts before Chief Magistrate Micheni Wendy where he is charged with stupefying and rape of female patients at his clinic in Githurai within Nairobi.

In his defence, he denied that he was a clinical officer at the said clinic at the time of the arrest.

According to Mugo, at the time of arrest, it could be impossible to practice as a doctor since he had not completed his internship and hence had not graduated.

He further said he has never practised as a medic and at the time of arrest, he was a businessman dealing with second-hand clothes.

He told the court that financial constraints as a student at the University of Nairobi, could not allow him to complete his studies.

James Mugo Ndicho faces a number of criminal charges including; rape, administering drug substances to his patient with intention of overpowering her so as to engage in sexual activity, and unlawfully carrying on the business of a pharmacist.

He has since denied particulars of the offence.

Both the prosecution and the defence side have completed their case with the court tasking the defence to file written submissions before judgment.
