Sunday World - - Letters Opinion - Fan­tas­tica pseu­dolo­gia

OUR moegoe with a cap­i­tal M” has to be our fake doc­tor Pallo Jor­dan.

What do you call some­one who fakes his qual­i­fi­ca­tions when there is ab­so­lutely no need to do so?

In psy­chi­a­try, patho­log­i­cal ly­ing, also called

and mytho­ma­nia, is a be­hav­iour of ha­bit­ual or com­pul­sive ly­ing.

Now his ac­tions have cost him his job in par­lia­ment and speak­ing en­gage­ments as no or­gan­i­sa­tion would in­vite him, know­ing that the whole speech could be a fake.

We hope you have learnt your les­son.
