In August 2014, Gogoda was sentenced to 300 hours of common services with similar offence.

According to Lilongwe Police Public Relations Officer, Kingsely Dandaula the court is waiting for the state to bring more witnesses as Gogoda denied some of the medical equipment and drugs that were found in his bag.

“Gogoda pleaded guilty for posing as a medical doctor, but denied some of the medical equipment that are used in the theatre and drugs that were found in his bag which he left in the common room,” said Dandaula.

He said the case will be back in court on February 16, 2015.

Gogoda, 26 who hails from Simon Village, Traditional Authority Simon in Neno district was arrested on Tuesday February 3, 2015 at KCH.

It baffles the mind to imagine that someone unknown to nursing staff on a ward can be allowed to just walk into a ward and start seeing patients. Even students are expected to pay courtesy call to the nurse on duty to announce their presence. How come the incidence of these fake “doctors” seem to be getting common and detected rather poorly by those on the wards? Someone needs to introduce some common sense checks and balances at our health institutions and give the health care worker profession some much needed decency
