A nurse at United Bulawayo Hospital, Mpilo Sibanda (35) was arrested for writing a fake letter referring a patient for medical examination in South Africa.
He pleaded not guilty to the forgery charge, when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Gladmore Mushove who remanded him out of custody to today for judgment. The court heard that between May 16 and August 15 2016, Sibanda wrote a fake referral letter for Lorah Mlilo for her to obtain a CT scan in South Africa.
He allegedly used the UBH logo and stamp and wrote a non-existing Dr R Kenge as the writer of the letter which was intercepted by hospital authorities, while in the hands of the patient. Sibanda was arrested after the matter was reported to the police.
