No entry for Nairobi County Health officials at clinic in Dandora
One of the heath officials who sought anonymity, stated that they were not allowed to enter the building due to it being a crime scene.
“The police say it is crime scene and we have no option but to leave,” remarked the health county inspector.
Residents in the area were left in shock after they learnt that the clinic was not registered according to Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board (KMPD) chief executive Daniel Yumbya.
The locals further pointed out that the clinic was shut down for the first time on Sunday and repainted to hide the name.
The clinic that was opened ten years ago, was put under 24-surveillance by the police.
Betty Akinyi involved in miracle babies scandal
Betty Akinyi, who is one of the six suspects in the murder of Mwatha, was alleged to be the owner of the clinic by DCI boss George Kinoti.
"It is believed that an abortion procedure was procured by the owner of the clinic namely Betty Akinyi Nyanya and one purported “Dr” Michael Onchiri, alias Dr Mike,” remarked Kinoti.
Akinyi was involved in the miracle babies scandal by Bishop Gilbert Deya.
The suspect had been convicted in 2005 after she pleaded guilty and served her jail term at Lang’ata Women’s Prison in Nairobi.
