Former president Kibaki admitted in hospital over severe infection

Former president Mwai Kibaki is at the Nairobi hospital’s VIP ward since the 19th of June 2020. The hospital admitted him to manage a severe infection that put the former head of state in severe pain for the past ten days.

According to sources seeking anonymity, Kibaki was complaining of pain in the lower abdomen before he went to the hospital. The doctors took his samples, and the results are already out. The medics, however, assured that there is nothing to worry about, and the dedicated team is managing his pain.

“Samples were taken for testing in the lab. The results are out and nothing to worry about. His team of doctors is managing the pain,” the confidential source said.

There is no cause for alarm on Kibaki’s health.

Another source at Kibaki’s office claimed that there was no need to raise the alarm. According to him, the former president, who ruled between 2002-2013 as Kenya’s 3rd president, usually goes for routine checks.

“It is a moral 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 alarm,” the source said.

However, the confidential source refused to give more information on Kibaki and referred The Star to his family. He further explained that he did not have the authority to give out such information and sought anonymity.

Former President Kibaki has always maintained a low profile life since he retired from active politics in 2013. It was not until the burial of Mzee Moi that the public saw him after a long time. Kibaki had gone to view Moi’s body as it lay in state at Parliament grounds before his burial at his Kabarak home according to Kalenjin traditions.
