Bogus Oukasie doctor arrested

Bogus doctor John Peter Kadiubu is led away by police in Oukasie after his surgery was raided on Friday.

Dr John Peter Kadiubu has been in the police holding cells since Friday and appeared in the Brits Magistrates Court on Monday on charges of contravening the Medicines and related substances Act.

It was also discovered that the practice had been claiming from medical aids. Kadiubu, a Congo national, could allegedly not produce his asylum permit to the police.

He had been operating at a surgery in a backyard shack for a number of years.

The Citizen said it reported Dr John’s practice to the Acting National Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane and the North West National Provincial police in May last year.

On Friday Dr John was arrested after a tip-off from The Citizen, the Health Professionals Council of South Africa, Medicines Control National Health Department and Med-scheme officials to the Brits Police.

A police spokesperson said Dr John was arrested at around 13:00 for the illegal possession of medicines (schedule 2, 3, 4 and 5).

“On arrival police found boxes of medication that the suspect could not account for and he was arrested and is being detained in the Brits police cells. The value of the recovered items are estimated at R50 000 and the investigation continues,” he said.

In a statement, the North West provincial police said on Monday the police in Brits arrested a 45-year-old suspect at Oukasie location near Brits on Friday, 31 March 2017 for illegal possession of schedule 2, 3, 4 and 5 medicines.

“The suspect’s arrest came after the police swiftly responded to a tip-off. The police went to the suspect’s place where they conducted a search. It was during the search that boxes containing various medicines worth R50 000 were found inside the house. The suspect was then arrested after failing to account for possession of the medicines.”
