A fake doctor, Gideon Rerimoi Kosgei, was on Thursday arrested in Kabartonjo, Baringo North trying to perform an abortion procedure on a minor.
The middle-aged man operates a clinic with a fake licence.
He was shocked when police officers arrived at his clinic, just when he was preparing a 14-year-old girl for the abortion.
In disbelief, Kosgei passed out. His 'patient,' the young girl, was also shocked as she watched in disbelief.
The police officers waited for the quack doctor to regain consciousness before arresting him.
The girl was also taken away by the police officers. However, she was later released to her parents.
According to area residents, Kosgei had been carrying out criminal activities at his clinic. They had previously reported him to the police.
“The suspect did not have even one valid operating license. We also learnt that, in his clinic, he was extracting patients’ teeth without having any qualification,” Francis Chelobei, Baringo County health coordinator said.
Police found expired drugs in his clinic. Drugs supposed to be prescribed by government health facilities and alcohol were also found in Kosgei's clinic.
According to Baringo North OCPD, Paul Mwangangi, he has been doing abortion procedures for a while.
