POLICE in Livingstone have arrested a male identified as, Justine Michelo, aged 23 years old for impersonating a nurse.
Police Public Relations Officer, Esther Katongo, said the man was arrested after the public handed him over to police.
She told the Daily Nation yesterday, the public spotted Mr Michelo clad in a nursing uniform and reported the matter to officials at Livingstone Central hospital to verify if indeed he was a nurse or not.
But it was later established that the said person was not a nurse which prompted the public to apprehend and surrender him to the police.
Ms Katongo said the incidence happened around 10;00 hours yesterday and the person in question was in custody awaiting court appearance.
