Former President Mwai Kibaki was on Monday re-admitted to a Nairobi hospital hardly two weeks after he was discharged.

Reports indicate he was admitted for a recurrent painful knee and is undergoing tests to establish the cause.

According to sources quoted by the Star, Kibaki was being “treated for a similar condition that had taken him previously”.

“Mzee is around being taken care of by his doctors. He has undergone several tests once again to try to establish what could be the cause of the much pain he is in,” a source at the hospital told the Star.

On October last year, Kibaki was admitted to The Nairobi Hospital, days after he returned from treatment in London.

At the time, he had complained of pain on his knee was there for “knee management”.

Last month, Kibaki was admitted to the same facility and was treated for “severer pain at the lower abdomen”.

A day after June 28 when the Star published the story of Kibaki being admitted to hospital, private secretary Ngari Gituku denied Kibaki was in hospital for 10 days.

Gituku told the Standard that he was treated and discharged the same day and that it was a routine check-up.
