Medical Manipulation Unveiled: Mpilo Central Hospital Exposes Conwoman’s Deceptive Tactics 

In a startling revelation, Mpilo Central Hospital has uncovered the deceitful actions of Sithulisiwe Gambiza, a patient whose recent audio appeal for financial aid went viral on social media. Gambiza, who claimed to be a chronic patient facing dire circumstances, is now exposed as a well-known conwoman exploiting her alleged illness.

The saga began when Gambiza, an epileptic patient entitled to free treatment, asked a trainee nurse aide to record an audio plea for handouts to cover her medical bills. In the audio, she appealed for support, citing an accident on January 3 during her journey from Kariba. She claimed to be without medication or food from the hospital and requested donations to be sent to a nurse named Thato Ncube

Trainee Nurse Aide Implicated, Investigations Launched

The nurse aide, implicated in the scheme, was promptly dismissed, and Mpilo authorities initiated a thorough investigation. Gambiza underwent a scan at United Bulawayo Hospitals to evaluate the alleged injuries from the accident. However, medical records revealed that she had been attended at Sally Mugabe Hospital on January 12 and later presented at Mpilo on January 17, complaining of fractures in her right hand.
