Bogus doctor arrested for illegal abortions

The Hawks, together with the Health Professions Council of South Africa and Medicines Control Council, arrested a 46-year-old male on Tuesday for performing illegal abortions.

According to the Hawks spokesperson, Capt Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi, information was received about a bogus doctor who was operating an illegal surgery in Malalane.

“An investigation revealed that the so-called doctor is not registered with the SA medical council as a doctor and he is practising illegally, using traditional medicines and abortion pills,” said Sekgotodi.

The doctor was arrested before he could start performing an abortion to a client who paid R700 for the abortion. “The surgery was searched pamphlets for abortion, medicine, cell phone and money were seized and sent to a laboratory,” she said.
