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.

Fong kong doctors, and doesn't seem like anybody is taking this case seriously or there would have been a major uproar by now.

And in other news UKZN has spent over R157mil investigating fraud at their medical school but zero disciplinary hearings have been kicked off and nobody has been prosecuted yet.

Why so slow? Do they hope people will forget and move on? No wonder university fees are so high.
That case is slightly different. It's fpr admission to the university, not for actually passing

There was a similar case on carte blanche a few years ago of some politicians son that failed varsity doing his internship. He's probably a qualified brain surgeon these days :laugh:
