Mugo appeared before her court to answer to charges of running a medical facility without the proper licenses.

Mugo denied the charges seeking to have the court release him which was not granted.

The quack will remain in custody until December 6 when his case will be heard again.

According to the charge sheet, Mugo is facing three charges including two counts of carrying out unlawful business as a pharmacist without a license and operating a medical laboratory without a licence.

The prosecution managed to convince the court to deny Mugo bail after they stated that he had a similar case still pending in court.

The court had earlier ordered a medical examination for Mugo before his trials begin.

The two are charged with various offenses related to operating a pharmacy illegally.
