Mugo wa Wairimu, who was accused of sedating and raping his patients at his clinic, was released by Nairobi Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo on a Sh5 million bond with a surety of a similar amount with an alternative of Sh1 million cash bail.
Mr Ndichu was warned against contacting witnesses in the case against him, in which case the bond would be cancelled should he disobey the order. The Court said the case will be mentioned on 19th Oct and heard on 23rd Nov.
The ‘doctor’ also has a separate case of practising without authority that is pending at the Makadara Law Courts.
Following his release on bail, angry Kenyans who have been baying for his blood were left disappointed by the news.
In their typical fashion, they took to social media to question the Kenyan Justice System.
Below are some of the reactions

Everyone is entitled to a BOND including #MugoWaWairimu unless s/he is a FLIGHT risk or capable of commiting the same crime…its his RIGHT

People don’t understand the law.You are innocent until proven guilty.Your opinion doesnt matter. Bond/bail is his legal right #MugoWaWairimu

Some of the comments i have seen here on #MugoWaWairimu ‘s release on bond is clear proof that most Kenyans are ignorant of the law!
