Two alleged bogus doctors in court

2012-02-01 19:49

Pietermaritzburg - The bail hearing for alleged bogus doctor Jonathan Kinane and his co-accused, Ivan Kiganyi, has been postponed to Friday by the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court.

The court heard on Wednesday that Kinane was not there for the bail hearing because he was prevented by the police investigating officer from leaving a police station.

The two - both Ugandan nationals - are herbalists. They face charges of administering abortion procedures without the required licence. They have been in police custody since December last year.

According to court papers, the two allegedly told women they were doctors with the power to communicate with ancestors.

They are accused of defrauding a local woman of R103 000.

    Why do people fall for these con-artists? Why do the authorities not put a stop to these scam practices? I am sick and tired of people trying to stuff pamphlets into my car at every intersection promising better erections and more money.

      I think it is obvious why they don't put a stop to it, it is their primitive culture to believe in communication with ancestors etc.

      Janine that's why any reasonable person doesn't believe in invisible men in the sky. All religious practice is hokey pokey primitive nonsense.
