Fake doctor caught at Malmed Clinic in Blantyre

 A bogus doctor had a rude awakening on Friday at lunch hour when Malawi police officer pounced on him at Malmed Clinic in Blantyre.

Chisoso: Fake doctor arrested

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a member of staff at Malmed clinic said the ‘doctor’ Lloyd Chisoso, 36-years old, had earlier applied for a job at the clinic on the post of medical doctor under the name Dr. Alexander Chijuwa.

“Our clinic management called Blantyre District Health Office and the police after they got suspicious of how he was consulting with patients as orientation to the job,” said an eye witness in an interview.

The witness further said management was skeptical about his credentials when he said he was District Health Officer (DHO) for Nsanje and they wondered why he would want to work at the clinic.

When contacted, Blantyre DHO Dr. Medson Matchaya confirmed the incident and said he rushed to the clinic because he knows the real Dr. Chijuwa that the bogus doctor was impersonating.

“I was called because our office regulates on behalf of Medical Council of Malawi (MCM) and we normally supervise them. The first thing we check for is the authenticity of the people who are practicing because we do not want to subject people to danger,” Matchaya said.

He further said he knows Dr. Alexander Chijuwa, who is much younger than the fake doctor masquerading with forged papers.

“I am surprised how he got all the documents. The registration number is swapped, the Bachelor’s Degree paper looks authentic except for the year of graduation,” Matchaya said.

Llyod Chisoso, who hails from Tsikulamowa Village in Traditional Authority (T/A) Mpando in Ntcheu, is now under the custody of Blantyre Police Station for further questioning.

    People think by running away from school they would get it easy in life. Ndiyetu zimenezi. My advice to Employers is that when recruiting staff please engage professional HR Managers or Practitioners to advice you. The issue of employing people with fake papers comes about when HR managers are not involved in the recruiting process.

  8. Just a clarification: he never worked at Malmed Clinic. He came to the clinic to seek locum jobs as a Doctor since, to put it in his own words: “he was staying in Blantyre pursuing a Masters Degree in Internal Medicine”. Management of Malmed Clinic was clear that this man was a bogus doctor so decided to call him in for orientation along with a regular clinician just to keep him around long enough to allow law enforcing authorities (Police and DHO Blantyre to confront and arrest him. He never saw any single patient on his own. Malmed Management is therefore proud to have exposed such a bogus character who would easily have been employed elsewhere and put patients’ lives at risk.

    This guy came to my clinic and he said he is a lecture of public health at skyway and he wanted to understand some medical terms as he said his subject has more of medical jargons. Stupid man I had to spend close to 1 hour explaining.

    How many are out there practicing medicine or nuring with regstration certificate: Suppose he was at Mbenje or Chotoloma Trading Centres would authorities know? I doubt seriously it. Consumers of healthcare are at high risk.

    The employer in this case had put lives of his patients and clients at highest risk of poisoning, drugs abuse and drug resistance to diseases. An intensive interview would have uncovered he was face. If his referees were contacted it could have shown he was a kangaroo Dr. These are prices that employers pay when they ignore roles of human resource advisors/managers when selecting and recruitment staff. Through a robust recruitment process fake physicians can screened out. Another risk that is there in clinics is that health workers nurses included who failed exams =and were weeded. Using their little knowledge they practice nursing and medicine.
