    Sad as it may be the victim being a doctor herself should have known better than to go to a quack. This should also alert the authorities to have a proper list of such establishments and physically check the places without going only by documents produced which are not authentic. Over to you Health Ministry start a watch dog campaign consisting of a few good men and women not again somebodys somebody.

    This may be a wake up call! How do we know how many more of this type of fakes are treating people? This may be a call to the relevant authorities to inspect the quality of others so called doctors.
