Fake doctor nabbed for theft

A HARARE man has been arrested for allegedly faking to be a doctor and stealing surgery apparatus from the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.

Douglas Mutoredzanwa (37) appeared before Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi who remanded him in custody to April 29 for bail application.

According to prosecutor Rufaro Chonzi, Mutoredzanwa was apprehended on Tuesday this week after a doctor at the hospital caught him analysing an X-ray film upside down.

Chonzi said Mutoredzanwa went to a consulting room at the hospital and misrepresented that he was a medical doctor attending to a patient.

It is alleged that he grabbed an X-ray film and pretended to be analysing it, albeit holding it upside down. Mutoredzanwa was immediately arrested and charged with theft of medical equipment that was recovered from him by security guards during his arrest.

The stolen goods included two surgical blades, pethadine drugs, three syringes, cotton wool, two Cannula sensitive tapes and a pair of gloves from the hospital’s medical supplies stores.

Chonzi also told the court that Mutoredzanwa had a pending warrant of arrest for another offence recorded in 2019.
