A man who pretended to be a doctor at Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) has been apprehended by the hospital guards on Monday morning. The man, identified as Abdala Juma (30), was found speaking to relatives of a patient who was in need of blood transfusion.
The fake doctor even had a stethoscope hanging around his neck.
Speaking to The Citizen, Mr Juma said that he went to the hospital to see a friend, but was surprised to be arrested instead. It is said that the guards had been following him up for a while.
MNH Head of Communications Aminiel Aligaesha said the move was among the hospital's strategies to deal with conmen.
