Meet The Fake Doctor In Kenya Who Performs 8 Illegal Successful Surgeries

Ronald Melly is a fake doctor from Kenya who has performed about eight illegal successful operations at Kapsabet County Referral Hospital before he was transferred to head Meteitei Sub-County Hospital,According to a report by forum.facmedicine.com.

Ronald Melly worked for many years at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital in Kenya without anybody noticing him as a fake doctor.

The case of the fake doctor was brought to light after a report prepared by Health ministry officials was tabled before the Assembly. In the report, were the names of all the people Mr. Melly had operated.


The report revealed that of the nine patients Mr Melly operated on, only one died.
County health chief officer Edward Serem added that, “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,” 


Nandi Governor Cleophas Lagata looking through the fake doctor's record said,

“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,”


Meanwhile, the health committee, chaired by Norbert Maiyo, believe the government should rather train Mr. Melly instead of taking legal action against him and allow him to continue working since he looks good on the job. 

Mr. Melly’s family also back the call by the health committee to help train their relative to become a qualified doctor. 

“Since he looks committed to becoming doctor, let the government sponsor him to train as a medical doctor or clinical officer,” Mr. Melly’s uncle said.
