President Kenyatta on Sunday visited former multi-party crusader Kenneth Matiba, who is admitted at Nairobi hospital.
" Visited my friend Kenneth Matiba, former Minister, who is convalescencing at a Nairobi hospital," the President posted on his Facebook page.
The head of state had in 2013 paid a similar visit to the veteran politician, who was admitted at the Karen Hospital. The 84-year-old has been ailing since 2007.
The former cabinet minister was one of the many Kenyans who suffered during President Moi's regime after being detained at Kamiti Maximum Prison without trial.
Matiba was diagonized with serious stroke in 1991, but remained in detention without medication for about one week. Recently, he was awarded over Sh500 million as compensation for the torture he was subjected to in the hands of state agents while in prison. The compensation is arguably the highest awarded to a victim of state torture in the country.
