Bogus Harare doctor denied bail, labelled a danger to society

HARARE magistrate Judith Taruvinga yesterday denied bail to a bogus doctor who served in the Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals casualty unit for seven months before he was unmasked.

Taruvinga described Admire Chisi (25) of Zimre Park, Ruwa as a danger to society.

The court heard that Chisi allegedly illegally attended to patients and wrote medical affidavits and prescriptions until a senior doctor discovered his shenanigans.

He is being charged with impersonating a public official and fraud.

The prosecution led by Sebastian Mutizirwa had opposed bail, saying Chisi was a flight risk.

Chisi argued that the State had not previously mentioned the alleged danger.

He said he was a proper candidate for bail and was of fixed abode.

But the magistrate ruled that Chisi was a danger to society and a flight risk.

It is the State's case that between April and Tuesday last week, Chisi went to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, where he attended to patients masquerading as a medical doctor.

He was apprehended after doctor Tapiwa Nyakudya noticed that Chisi was not acting like a professional doctor and handed him to police, leading to his arrest.
