Public urged to report bogus practitioners
comparison

The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) expressed serious concerns over registered health practitioners who employ unregistered individuals to work in their practices.

This comes after 45-year-old Dr Kishule Bataciramwira was arrested on Friday 17 July for practicing without having been registered with the council

The HPCSA’s Cape Town-based inspectorate office, together with Kraaifontein police, were conducting an inspection at the Eikendal practice of Dr ECA Mensah when the arrest took place.

“During the inspection, the team found Bataciramwira practising as a medical doctor and consulting with patients while not registered with the council. He was arrested and detained at the Kraaifontein police station until he appeared in court,” HPCSA spokesperson Priscilla Sekhonyana says.

She says the public should report any suspicious illegal practices.

“Registered practitioners should refrain from employing unregistered locums as this poses a risk and endangers the lives of the public,” Sekhonyana continues.

Kraaifontein police spokesperson Capt Hein Hendricks confirmed the arrest of a 45-year-old man for practicing as a medical doctor while not registered as a medical practitioner.
