Woman Dies In Botched Abortion Organized By Husband And Two Quack Doctors
A man who assisted his wife in procuring a botched abortion leading to her death in Nairobi has been arrested.
The man was arrested alongside two suspected quack doctors who conducted the failed operation.
The arrest came after intensive investigations by detectives based at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, who stumbled upon the lifeless body of a middle-aged woman along Outering road on new year's eve.
The body, wrapped in a white bedsheet, was discovered dumped in a stormwater tunnel near Shell petrol station along the busy road, with preliminary findings indicating that the body may have been murdered elsewhere and dumped at the scene by unknown persons.
"Two days ago, the officers got wind that the body had been disposed at the scene after a botched operation conducted by a suspected quack doctor identified as Richard Orambo, who operates a clinic known as Watergate Medical Centre at Mathare Area 1," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.
A preliminary report indicates that the quack, in consultation with another rogue doctor Francis Messo who runs Busanzi health clinic in Dandora phase 4, had tried in vain to procure the abortion. Still, when the patient developed complications, they opted to rush her to another backstreet clinic in Kiambu, 14 km from the capital Nairobi.
While on their way to Kiambu, the patient lost her life, and the trio dumped her body in the stormwater tunnel to cover their tracks.
Detectives have since arrested the two quacks, and the deceased's husband identified Richard Onyango, who facilitated payment for the botched exercise.
The three are currently being processed to answer to charges of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
