A Thabazimbi Doctor Has Been Arrested On Tuesday Afternoon. See What Happened. Pics

This image has been trending on all social media platforms, including the Facebook app.


According to Selema Kabelo of the HPCSA, was operating under the name Dr D Motswaledi and selling medical certifications for R1000 to people who approached him.

According to a spokeswoman for Thabazimbi, Doctor Motswaledi did not have an office or a specific location where he worked. People would call him, and he would set up a meeting with them on the street or at his home. There, he would issue the certificate and be paid, according to the spokeswoman, and he would keep doing the same thing.

His detention is the result of a sick letter he wrote to Seshiro.

According to a spokesperson for Thabazimbi, Seshiro required a medical certificate and was directed to Block C by a coworke. Seshiro allegedly paid R1000 for the medical certificate and presented it to his employer.

When employees submit sick notes, employers normally verify with the HPCSA to see if the note is real and the doctor is registered, according to Mphaphuli.


An operation was carried out by the Thabazimbi West Crime Intelligence Unit and the Thabazimbi Metro Police Department in collaboration with the Inspectorate Office.

False practitioners must not pose as healthcare providers, according to the HPCSA, because this has serious ramifications for the public. The public is also warned about the risks of consulting with unlicensed professionals, according to the HPCSA.
