Medic, 65, in jail after woman dies during abortion procedure

Police in Kirinyaga County have arrested a 65-year-old man following the death of a woman after an abortion procedure allegedly went awry.

The accused, a retired doctor, runs the privately licensed clinic in Sagana where the alleged abortion on the 20-year-old was conducted.

According to Mwea West OCPD Joseph Matiku, police had a difficult time trying to save the accused from irate residents who threatened to lynch him.

They accused him of causing the death of another person, a case they say is in court.

Sagana residents have also faulted county public health officers for allowing the doctor to operate a clinic despite reports that he conducts back-door abortions.

The retired doctor is being held at Sagana Police Station awaiting to be arraigned in court.
