Emmanuel Mucheni (36) of New Parklands suburb allegedly attended to and issued a prescription to Mr Chenjerai Kudzurunga at 8th Avenue Emergency Clinic without a valid practicing certificate.
Mr Kudzurunga took the prescription to Medi Health Pharmacy located along Joshua Nkomo Street before he tendered it to the pharmacist, Mr Azeem Gaibi, intending to purchase the prescribed medicine.
Mr Gaibi discovered that the prescription was issued by Mucheni and made a police report leading to his arrest.
The medical practitioner pleaded not guilty to one count of defying the Health Professions Act before Ms Rachel Mukanga and was remanded out of custody to April 12.
Prosecuting, Mr Terrence Chakabuda said on February 18, 2021 detectives from CID Drugs and Narcotics in Bulawayo received a tip off indicating that Mucheni was discharging medical duties without a valid certificate.
“Police then set a trap before the accused by sending messages to all pharmacies within Bulawayo Central Business District to alert police if they received any prescription issued by the accused,” said the prosecutor. chronicle
