Mystery doctor on MAC allegedly has bogus qualifications

Organisation: Position: Deadline Date: Location:

A doctor who President Cyril Ramaphosa is claimed to have recommended Health Minister Zweli Mkhize appoint to the Ministerial Advisory Committee on Covid-19 is believed to have bogus qualifications and no medical experience, reports Sunday Independent.

When Dr Ringane ka Seme was named as “external advisory” on “Health and Presidency”, a whistle-blower tipped off the Department of Health about Ringane ka Seme’s bogus qualifications and a “top secret” report was compiled that states:

* She is unlawfully in possession of two ID books, one as a man and the other as a woman and that both IDs are active;

* She is fraudulently parading herself or himself as a medical doctor,

* She isn’t registered with the Health Professional Council of SA as a doctor; and

* She sometimes masquerades as a lawyer.

Ringane ka Seme failed to answer questions from the Sunday Independent, the report says.
