Malawi arrest another fake doctor at Kamuzu Central Hospital

Malawi Police in Lilongwe have arrested Lansford Gogoda aged 26 who was masquerading as a medical doctor  despite that he was unqualified.

It is reported that nurses were unable to read some of the medical reports he had compiled after having treated patients and this raised more suspicions.

Gogoda is said to have raised more suspicions after he prescribed a wrong medication for a patients.

Lilongwe Police Public Relations Officer Kingsley Dandaula confirmed to Nyasa Times that the Police indeed arrested Gogoda who comes from Symon Village in Neno.

Dandaula said Gogoda was arrested in the corridors of Kamuzu Central Hospital while putting on doctor’s regalia and had stethoscope on his neck.

“We have charged him with impersonating the public servant,” said Dandaula.

Dandaula has since appealed to Kamuzu Central Hospital officials to provide their members of staff with Identification Cards to avoid repeat of the same.

Police in October 2014 arrested Wongani Akuzike Kandulu at Queen Elizabeth’s Central Hospital for the similar offence.

    There is something wrong with the administration of those institution, it is not about Fake altititude but we are the people who are supposed to control all these from happening

  10. Kanyimbi says:

    If the man bought stethoscope, can he fail to fake an ID? The most important thing is for administrators to arrange for meetings so that people know new members of staff. A duty roster is also needed because this man was working in an office so whose office was he working in? Why did he chose that office?

    My Colleagues,

    Kindly xool me abit. Iam not uptodate on this. Why are these people faking and practising? I mean what is attracting them to do that? Any hidden benefits?

    1. KING SOLOMONS PALACE WISDOM says:

      THEY R NOT ON PAYROLL. BUT HOSPITAL DRUG SMUGLIN IS THEIR BENEFIT.SMELL DE STENCH NOW?

  12. Mugonapamhanya says:

    There are syndicates within major hospitals who peddle drugs to unsuspecting patients. Some of qualified doctors and pharmacy staff are also involved. Who is fooling who here?

  13. popapo says:

    I thought Medicine is the most complicated profession but I wonder how it is easy to pretend you are a Doctor ! If it were in agriculture definitely it could be much easier not so ?

  14. 100% Malawian says:

    Nkhaniyi ndiodabwitsa chifukwa ku central hospital each department imakahala ndi staff members and it’s head of department, and sizingatheke munthu kungobwela kudzapanga treat ma patient without knowledge of either staff members or head of department. Nkhani ngati imeneyi ikusonyezelatu kuti some people are not accountable to their responsibilities. Mapeto ake muphetsa anthu osalakwa

  15. Strange rains Missi says:

    Hahaha even if you introduce ID’s we will still have many fake doctors with even fake ID’s.

  16. Shoes says:

    Everything is fake in Malawi

  17. True patriot says:

    This is a network connected to some big fish.I suspect many patients have died or developed side effects due to his wrong prescriptions.Government please,do something on this.

  18. proust says:

    Simply a reflection of what this country is fake president, fake ministers, fake civil servants, fake shops, everything fake fake

  19. ben wa ben says:

    Mr Gogoda or whatever u call urself go back to school and take the challenge u will become a doctor one day rather than imposing like one

  20. prinquo says:

    everything is fake now no suprise

  21. Neutral says:

    Kkkkkkkkk forge the lD get thr the entrance as a patient while inside put on the docs regalia and the fake lD, deal done! Kkkkkkk. So plz let us find a better way of dealing with this

  22. First Lady says:

    Ask them their main aim is what & what are they benefiting by doing that

  23. abusa says:

    The charge should extend to wtecklessness and putting lives at risk. May be penal code doesn’t have such? It should also extend to negligence for the person in charge of duty roster. Both legal and administrative actions are required here ie. Within kch it means systems are not working and someone is sleeping on the job.
    LASTLY remove the incentive. Why do people like to do it. Perhaps they cash in?

  24. Ababa Thamangiwa. says:

    hahhahahahaha. Fake Opposition, Fake CSOs fake businessmen, fake prophets, fake democracy fake GRADUATES fake fake fake.

  25. Ababa Thamangiwa. says:

    hahhahahahaha. Fake opposition, fake businessmen, fake prophets, fake democracy fake fake fake fake.

  26. Anthony Kassam says:

    Ttuest of the comments I have ever seen or come across. Why would one cling to being a doctor when he is not??

  27. The Patriot says:

    So simple to solve! Identity cards to all workers in the hospital showing their positions and titles then a No ID No Entry policy at the gate. Problem solved!

    1. mbangombe says:

      This is not a solution. People will git in there as probably visitors or patients only to put on their regalia disguising as doctors while inside eith fake ids. Unless these ids are visible, authentic enough to anyone seeing them. People are creative.

  28. Peter Muthanyula says:

    We live in a fake country with a fake attitude, fake spiritual beliefs, fake government, fake economy and fake everything. Why are you surprised?

    1. James James says:

      Mind your comment. If you are not really better make yourself real. Not everyone is like you. Please have respect for yourself and others Mr. Man
