African Doctor – Crazy Photo of the Week

African Doctor Funny!

This African Doctor, Dr Juma can do anything! Today, I’ve got more pure gold from this fantastic and amazing continent. Africa is usually a great source for funny travel photos, because their interpretation of English can morph into the funny, bizarre and downright weird, which tends to come out in a lot of their signage. But that’s one of the reasons I love going there. There is nothing pretentious about Africa, and what you see is what you get.

And that includes medical services from Dr Juma, who is most likely a Witch Doctor. He even spruiks his own services on a massive hand painted billboard on the side of the road to get the clients in.  And his services go beyond the standard medical variety as well. I was amazed at what he was offering!

I must say, he is one enterprising African Doctor. I want to nominate him for entrepreneur of the year!

This picture was received via email from a friend – check it out and have a chuckle!

See what this African Doctor Can Do!


If you are having trouble reading this sign, this is what Dr Juma can offer you:

  • Bewitched People (huh?)
  • Swollen body
  • Lost lover
  • Insanity
  • Diarrhoea
  • Madness
  • To make men’s penis strong!
  • Woman with pregnancy problems
  • Vomiting all the time
  • Misfortunes
  • Demand debts
  • Remove misunderstanding with anybody
  • Court cases
  • Casino specialist (woo hoo!)
  • Bad Luck
  • Customer Attraction
  • Etc…
Etc? Sounds like he can do anything you want him to! I love this sign!

If you’re travelling in Africa and are feeling a bit sick (or even a bit short of money!), then you can visit Dr Juma the African Doctor and he will fix everything!

I’m guessing Dr Juma hasn’t read Where There is No Doctor: Village Health Care Handbook for Africa.

    We need more doctors like this in North America. Ours are obviously slacking if they are not also casino experts and able to “make mens pennis strong”.

    See, I think if we’re going to be provided with doctors on the National Health Service they should also be casino specialists and be able to treat insanity and debts.

      That’s actually pretty close to the mark. Doctors who can also treat gambling addictions and debts! Awesome!
