Bogus KZN doctor's college shut down
Johannesburg - A bogus doctor who fooled job seekers was ordered by the KwaZulu-Natal High Court to close down his college in eTafuleni near Durban, the provincial health department said on Wednesday.
Simphiwe Zondo claimed to be a doctor and recruited job seekers to be trained as nurses and doctors at the Inanda College of Wellness, department spokesperson Chris Maxon said in a statement.
"These students lived under very unhygienic conditions which were a danger to themselves and the nearby communities."
Maxon said a joint task team involving health officials from eThekwini Municipality, the department of health and the police worked together to ensure that the illegal operation was shut down.
Students were charged R3 500 to undergo training.
