Malawian ‘fake’ doctor Mosimbwa arrested in US

A Malawian  native is facing 21 criminal charges after  allegedly forging documents to obtain a medical license in the United States.

According to ABC 57 News report, 43-year-old Charles Mosimbwa,  was arrested by special agents from the Michigan Attorney General’s office  on Friday.

The report says  investigators discovered he had turned in forged documents to the state of Michigan so he could get a valid license to practice medicine in Berrien County.

Investigators say Mosimbwa was practicing medicine out of his Berrien Springs apartment and then moved to an office space in Niles.

Mosimbwa: Charged with fraud

“Practicing medicine without the required training and expertise recklessly endangers the welfare of patients,” says Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.  “Whenever credible evidence arises to suggest criminals are undermining the quality of our health care, we will move swiftly to take action.”

Mosimbwa has been charged with one count of Racketeering, a felony with a maximum of 20 years in prison.

He was also charged with two counts of Uttering and Publishing and one count of forgery, both felonies with a maximum of 14 years in prison.
