Queen’s Hospital registers another bogus doctor, arrested

A week after the Mchinji First Grade Magistrate sentenced Blessings Chisale who posed as a Medical Doctor at the district hospital to seven years imprisonment with hard labour, Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre has registered yet another quack doctor, Zamil Michael, 31.

Hospital Administrator Themba Mhango confirmed of the development saying the suspect was apprehended Monday by the hospital’s security details after they were tipped by some guardians who were suspicious of Michael.

“He was arrested while walking in the corridors of the hospital after guardians and patients were surprised with the dressing of the person in one of the wards. He had a Stethoscope on his neck the time he was apprehended,” said the QECH Administrator.

And on their part, the police said that the suspect confessed that he was not a trained medical doctor, claiming the Stethoscope he had with him belonged to his sister, whom the police say are yet to get hold of for further investigations.

“We thank the patients and the guardians for alerting the security guards otherwise such kind of personalities need to be checked and reported forthwith as they are dangerous.

“Police are still investigating the case, “said Blantyre Police Spokesperson Elizabeth Divala.

Michael turns out to be a third bogus doctor at QECH alone. In Lilongwe central Hospital just like Mchinji District Hospital registered one.

The nation is yet to know the motive behind this impersonation of Medical Doctors.

7years IHL to someone who had not even administered any drug to a patient while someone who robbed, denied and killed millions of people by stealing millions of kwachas meant for their treatment is given 5years? My Malawi and its Laws.

Only in Malawi, the government is failing to hire trained Doctors but fake DOctors can freely walk the halls of a major referral hospital. Something is not right!,,,

The most foolish thing in life is failure to draw lessons when something transpires. After September 11 the civil aviation industry learnt something. And that is why all passengers and pilots are rigorously searched before boarding aircraft. Now, what has hospital authorities and indeed health regulatory authorities done in the wake of this? You see, there are some professionals in the healthcare delivery system who delight in street attires. And with that, how can we check these criminals. Akuti poti ndi a dokotala/ clinical officer sangavale uniform let alone IDs. Ndi Ku Malawi kokha kuno kuli mediocrity ngati imeneyi. Elsewhere… Read more »

This story reminds me of another bogus doctor who was only targeting his fellow Malawians . He also had stethoscope in his possession. He pretended to be a medical doctor at Johannesburg Central Hospital who had been high jacked and needed help when some people directed him to his fellow Malawians. There he would promise them jobs at the Jhb hospital and took some money from his victims and vanished.
