Kenya’s second President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi was for teh second time in a week admitted to The Nairobi Hospital.
He was on Thursday rushed to the hospital with a breathing problem.
Long-time Press Secretary Lee Njiru, however, said the visit was just but a routine check-up.
“It is prudent and advisable that everybody should go for a medical check-up, so Mzee Moi went for a medical check-up,” he said.
Mr Njiru said Mr Moi’s physician, Dr David Silverstein will determine how long he will stay at the hospital.
“He is expected to go back home but that will be at the discretion of his personal physician; he will make the final decision.
The former President has been taken to hospital several times for routine examinations, the last time being on October 13.
On March 11, 2018, the former President left the country for Israel, having been booked for a knee check-up.
The problem with his knee began on July 30, 2006 after he was involved in an accident in Limuru.
