On Sunday, security officers at the Helen Joseph hospital captured the well-known figure on social media who goes by the name Dr Matthew Lani.
The Gauteng health department made a statement indicating that Lani was captured during her attempt to enter the facility.
It was verified by department spokesperson Motalatale Modiba that Lani had been apprehended by hospital security officers.
Before being exposed as a fraudulent practitioner on TikTok, Lani claimed to be an alumni of the University of Witwatersrand and a staff member of the medical facility. His assertions have subsequently been refuted; the university has confirmed that Lani did not graduate from it, and the Health Professions Council of South Africa has declared that an individual like that is not a licensed healthcare provider.
The infamous personality has since been handed over to the men in blue.
