Former President Mwai Kibaki is admitted to Nairobi Hospital undergoing “management of severe pain as a result of an infection,” according to sources.
The ex-President was admitted on June 19 and was allocated a VIP ward where he has been receiving treatment for the last 10 days. Kibaki, who served as Kenya’s third President between 2002-2013, is reported to have complained of pain in the lower abdomen.
On Sunday, a source in the office of the former president said he is in the hospital for “routine medical check-up.” He is doing well, the source said. The official sought anonymity for he is not allowed to speak to the media on the matter.
Kibaki has maintained a low profile since exiting office in 2013 and was last seen in public in February at Parliament Buildings where the body of ex-President Daniel Moi lay in state. The 89-year-old made his way into the precincts of Parliament via an alternative gate facing Continental House.
