Ex-president Mwai Kibaki is admitted to Nairobi hospital undergoing “management of severe paint due to an infection. This is according to sources.
He was admitted on June 19and assigned to a VIP ward. He has since been receiving treatment for the last 10 days.
Prior to being hospitalised, he had complained of pain in the lower abdomen.
“Samples were taken for testing in the lab. The results are out and nothing to worry about. His team of doctors are managing the pain.” The source said.
An insider in the office of the former president said on Sunday that he is in hospital for “routine medical check-up.” He is doing well note the insider.
“It is a normal visit and there is nothing new. He goes there more often for scheduled check-ups be it once in a month or even twice. So no [cause for] anxiety,” an aide said on Sunday.
Since leaving office in 2013, the President has maintained a quiet life. The last time he appeared in public was during viewing of the body of former President Moi at Parliament Buildings.
Last year in September, Kibaki had flown to London for a number of medical examinations where his knee was also checked. Credible sources reveal Mzee’s knee had been sore.
