Health officials arrest fake doctors
Posted on Thursday, September 03, 2009 @ 13:06:20 CDT by kwpnews


NAIROBI, (Doreen Apollos/KNA) - The medical and dentist board officials Thursday cracked the whip on quacks purporting to be medical practitioners.

The officials arrested two men who are said to have been working as doctors in local private hospitals using forged certificates and accreditations.

One man was arrested after the hospital management raised complaints over his incompetence having prescribed wrong medicine to patients for the last three months.

The board's Chief Executive Officer Daniel Yumbya said the man had presented to his employer forged certificates from the University of Nairobi and the board.

Addressing members of the press, Yumbya said he led board members to the health facility after getting reports that the man had sought employment as a doctor through forged papers.

Records showed that the registration number of one of the forged papers belonged to a Dr Simon Mungu and was awarded in 1986, while the suspect claimed to have been registered as a doctor in 1997.

He had also purportedly been awarded with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree, upper second class honours, by the University of Nairobi whereas such degrees are not classified.

Yumbya said the man will be charged in court on several counts including practising as a doctor without being registered and forging documents.

He said cases of persons impersonating medics were rampant and warned healthcare facilities to verify with the relevant authorities any medical certificates presented to them by would-be employees.

The hospital's Director, Father Gonzalo Maria, said the man had worked at the facility for two-and-a-half months and that he was the first to be hired as a doctor.

The board members also ordered the vetting of two other employees, one serving as a laboratory technician and the other as a nurse.

Another suspect was also arrested as he tried his luck at the Nairobi hospital where he had gone for an interview
