Nigeria is the highest exporter of medical doctors to South Africa

Nigerian doctors are plenty in South Africa more than you can ever think.

Many of them are on the outskirts of the city, some are even in the villages.

A Nigerian doctor based in Pretoria said: “There is no nation in this world that has more medical doctors in South Africa than Nigeria”.

Many of these doctors came for greener pasture as times have been hard for them in Nigeria.

However, it is shocking that the South African media have refused to highlight the huge contributions of Nigerian medical doctors to the South African health system but are always quick to spotlight any negative story about Nigerians in South Africa.

Nomphumelelo Ngamlana, a South African lady who lives in Diesploot said: “I have met many Nigerian doctors in South Africa and some of them are really nice. I don’t know the one that is more popular in South Africa, Nigerian doctors or Nigerian pastors?”.

However, very few quacks have been discovered amongst the Nigerian doctors in South Africa.

Late November 2015, a Nigerian man, Anton Nwuafor was arrested allegedly using fake qualifications to practice as a “doctor” in Polokwane, Limpopo for years.

Nwuafor was also in South Africa illegally at the time of his arrest.

Efforts by nigeriansinsouthafrica.co.za to get the actual number of Nigerian doctors in South Africa proved abortive as at press time.
