RESHAL DAYANAND was employed at Northdale Hospital, Pietermaritzburg, in January 2016 as a medical intern and earned a salary for 14 months.
After the University of KwaZulu Natal paid for a private investigation, it was alleged that he never completed his studies at the university’s medical school, which meant he should not have practised as an intern.
Ncumisa Mafunda, spokesperson for the KZN Department of Health, said: “Once the department became aware of a fraudulently-acquired qualification by (Dayanand), who was later revealed to be a medical intern, he was suspended from Northdale Hospital and dismissed. A police case was registered with the SAPS.”
Normah Zondo, UKZN spokesperson, said the university also opened a criminal case against Dayanand.
Hawks spokesperson Captain Simphiwe Mhlongo confirmed that they were looking into the cases. “The Hawks are investigating and are waiting for the finalisation of documents that are being analysed,” he said.
