POLICE are investigating a case where doctors at Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo allegedly scammed a disabled breast cancer patient and quoted her $10000 for a $2000 operation.
The woman, Phanankosi Dube, died at her Makokoba home last Saturday while gasping for breath before she could raise the $10 000.
She survived on begging and was the family’s breadwinner.
Information gathered by The Chronicle indicates that five doctors including a Dr Dereck Matsika and a Dr Nathan Chiboyiwa are under investigation.
Her family told The Chronicle that police officers yesterday visited them as part of their investigations.
