A Kenyan man has been charged with 12 offences including rape, impersonating a gynaecologist and operating a clinic without a licence in Nairobi, BBC reports. The accused, Mugo wa Wairimu pleaded not guilty and has previously denied that he raped his patients.

Kenya’s Medical Practitioners Board has denied Wairimu is a registered doctor after a Kenya TV report in a footage revealed an unidentified man allegedly assaulting an unconscious woman on a clinic bed.
The secretly recorded footage was filmed by a suspicious staff member.
BBC reports that Wa Wairimu has been in custody since his arrest, as it was argued that releasing him might endanger his life because of the public outrage over the affair. The court ordered, Friday, that he remain in custody until Monday 5 October when his bail application is to be heard.
Also, hearing in the case will hold November 23.
