'Sekeramayi posing as medical doctor'

HARARE - War veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa has accused of Defence minister Sydney Sekeramayi of masquerading as a medical doctor.

This comes after first lady Grace Mugabe claimed at a Bindura rally last weekend that President Robert Mugabe summoned the Swedish-trained medical doctor because he felt he was on his deathbed  after falling sick from food poisoning, in an apparent jibe at Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, whose allies claimed he was deliberately poisoned by political foes at a similar rally in August.

“Everyone knows that he is not a qualified doctor and I want to challenge him to bring his registration with the Medical and Health Allied Professions,” Mutsvangwa said.

“The fact that he was a doctor, I was also a doctor sometime in the war because we were in the sections and we could give each other a hand but all the comrades who went to the war and were medical assistants are not claiming to be doctors because they have got integrity but he alone claims to be a doctor when he has not gone through the academic qualifications, that is not right.”

Efforts to obtain comment from Sekeremayi were futile.

Baaaatsheeele Chris during war redcross trained many pple as first aid personels to give medical help to tthose shot , Sekeramayi got such training so he is never a doctor . The reason we are hearing these lies that Sekeramayi is a doctor is to try and make him educated to the level of a doctor so that he can qualify to take over from Mugabe . manje manyangira yawona .

Mr Mutsvangwa should focus on the issues that he claims to represent.. discrediting Mr Sekeremayi in such a shallow manner wont help ...

This is a very serios expose' actually. If Sekeramayi fails to clear his name then he looses all credibility. There seems to be a lot of lies from the war period. It therefore explains why as a nation we are in such a mess. We have so many fake academics running the show. By the way, did Sekeramayi ever serve as a Minister of Health?

Donald trump wailed and screamed Obama was not an American or was not born in the USA. Obama then produced his birth certificate and that shut Trump up once and for good! Sekeramayi should produce his medical degree and relevant papers and shut Chris's mouth . Thereafter sue him ! So SS (sidney sekeramamzo) the ball is in your court. Help shut this loudmouth who seems to miss zanu so much!!

If you search on the MDPCZ website, you will realize that he is a registered doctor and he studied in Sweden

What's the fuss you people? SS qualified as a medical doctor after completing his studies. Mutsvangwa who only spent less than two years in the liberation war should stop talking rubbish. His contribution to the liberation to the struggle was as good as zero.

I know for sure Sydney Sekeramayi is not a Medical Doctor. I believe he left University midway for some reason or other.

the politics of Zimbabwe is fraught with insultive language since the prounounced hatred of opposition since independence. This has greatley affected and shred into pieces the purpoted acclaimed social repute zimbabweans are thought to hold. You hardly watch TV or listen to Radio without hearing foul language. i boycotted ZBC since year 2000. Lets help build back the repute of our social strata
