Suspected bogus doctor in dock
A SUSPECTED bogus doctor, who was arrested at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals where he posed as a medical doctor for the past six months, has appeared in court.
Admire Chisi, 25, was not asked to plead to allegations of impersonating a public official and was remanded in custody to today for bail application.
Allegations are that between April and October this year, Chisi went to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals where he misrepresented that he was a medical doctor. He allegedly attended to four patients and wrote medical affidavits and prescribed medicines to them.
Reports are that he was apprehended by Tapiwa Nyakudya who discovered anomalies in Chisi’s conduct, which was allegedly inconsistent with that of the medical profession.
He was asked to produce his medical certificate and failed and he was taken to the police, resulting in his arrest. Prosecutor Sebastian Mutizirwa appeared for the State.
