So-called “Dr Zulu” will be appearing in court soon after she was caught trying to solicit a bribe from a patient at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital in Johannesburg.

The Gauteng Department of Health on Monday issued a statement warning the public not to fall prey to bogus health practitioners.

“A person impersonating a medical doctor was nabbed at [the hospital] on Sunday night (25 February) after they demanded that an escort to a patient pay R700 for the ‘doctor’ to assist the patient,” the statement read.

It’s said the member of the public became suspicious when the bogus doctor wearing a tag with the name Dr Zulu imprinted on her green scrubs advised them to meet at the pedestrian gate where they said payment was to be made.

“When the woman was asked to produce her Health Professional Council of South Africa (HPCSA) registration number and a persal number by the security and facility management, she was unable to do so,” the statement read.

Social media users have since taken to the comment section, linking ‘Dr Zulu’ to another popular fake doctor known as ‘Dr Mathew’. Matthew Lani was arrested last year after he was caught by security guards at Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg, TshisaLIVE reported.

After a court appearance, Lani’s lawyer, Dumisani Mabunda was quoted as saying, “He was facing one charge of impersonating a doctor and as we have already indicated, his conduct was just for entertainment… He’s not a qualified doctor.”
