Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho is presently admitted to the hospital after he fell ill earlier this week.
Joho, who is admitted at Mombasa Hospital, said he has been there for the past five days and hopes he will be discharged soon.
“I have been watching this TV yaani naomba Mungu nasema ningetoka hapa, wacha tu… But God is good,” Joho said on Friday.
Governor Joho did not disclose his aliment but his Communications Director Richard Chacha was quoted by a section of local media saying he is suffering from malaria.
Joho, who doubles up as Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) deputy party leader, congratulated their candidate in Kibra by-election Bernard Imran Okoth for winning the seat.
“What has given more strength and makes me feel better is the results of Kibra… But I will be in Kibra soon to celebrate with my brother Imran,” said Joho.
“We knew it was going to go that way….. Those others never knew that before you get into the bedroom you have to pass through a gate, the living room, and many other doors before you get to the bedroom,” he added.
Joho was with former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo who had paid a courtesy call.
“Get well soon and go bouncing back to work and I hope to see you in Nigeria one of these days,” said Obasanjo.
