The Blantyre Magistrate Court has adjourned the case involving the first bogus doctor to be nabbed, Dr. Wongani Akuzike Kandulu, to February 2, 2015 for sentencing.
The quack doctor’s real name is Wongani Kumbukani Horace Kandulu, and was arrested in October last year at the referral Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) where he posed as a Medical Doctor.
On Monday this week the Blantyre First Grade Magistrate found him guilty although he has all along pleaded “not guilty”, after a fortnight ago being found with a case to answer.
He however asked the court to give him a chance to bring two witnesses who are medical practitioners at the referral hospital but the witnesses did not show up.
His arrest followed that of another impersonator, John Ben Kamanga who was arrested in November.
The Court has since sentenced Kamanga to six years IHL after finding him guilty of five cases which included impersonating a public officer and theft.
Unlike Kandulu, John Ben Kamanga a shoe vendor in Limbe, pleaded guilty.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
