Former head of state Mwai Kibaki is currently admitted at Nairobi Hospital.

Kibaki was rushed to the hospital on June 19 because of pain in the lower abdomen. He has stayed in the hospital for 10 days as doctors rush to stop the pain caused by an infection.

“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,” a source revealed to The Star.

However, a source in the office of the former President has dismissed the reports, saying Kibaki is in hospital for a normal routine checkup.

“It is a normal visit and there is nothing new. He goes there more often for scheduled check-ups be it once a month or even twice. So no alarm,” the source said.

The former head of state has maintained a private life after retiring from politics. The last time he made a public appearance was in February 2020 when he showed up to view the body of the late President Daniel Arap Moi during the state viewing.
