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.

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… Read more »
