ZANELE Eleanor Masondo(37) and Robert Yeboah Frempong (73) were arrested by a posse of Hawks and other law agencies for contravening the Health Act. This after they were found to have been operating a surgery in Middelburg and dispensing medicine and providing sick notes without the necessary permits and/or health certificates and degrees.

The two are out on bail of R1000 each and will return to the dock at end of January next year.

Various cases of fraudulent medical services have been opened by the Hawks with investigations ongoing.
