A quack doctor by name Ronald Melly from Nandi County has been arrested by the Kenya police for operating as a doctor without a proper license.

According to reports sighted, Ronald, before he was arrested, had been able to successfully perform eight(8) surgeries on some patients at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital before he was transferred to h\ead Meteitei Sub-County Hospital.

The details for the whole scenario became known in a report prepared by Health ministry officials in the county and was tabled in the assembly before the House went on recess last week Thursday.

County health chief officer Edward Serem submitted the report, which included the names of patients who underwent operations performed by the fake medic. The report indicated that of the nine patients Mr Melly attended to, only one died between June 5 and July 14 this year.

“During surgeries, he and a group of other doctors carried out, the patient who was then expectant died because she was on ‘stage’ four of the complication but they managed to save the baby,” said Dr Serem.

Nandi Governor Cleophas Lagat, speaking for the first time about the matter, said the county only received doctors seconded from the national government.

“I have never seen the fake doctor and the public should not blame the county government since doctors are employed by the parent ministry. I’ve directed that health staff working in the county be vetted,” said Dr Lagat on Saturday. The assembly directed vetting of all staff.
