The Sunday Times reported that Nokwanda Ndlovu, a high school dropout, claimed to be a Wits University medical student and worked at several facilities between November 2017 and December 2019.
Her first false stint, according to police records, was in 2017 as a medical intern at Benedictine Hospital in Nongoma when she was 20.
The publication reported that she claimed to be an orphan who needed to complete her internship to finish her degree.
It also reported that the woman was arrested for fraud for impersonating a medical intern at Nkandla Hospital, but while she was out on bail, continued her "internship" at a clinic outside Pietermaritzburg
