Retired President Mwai Kibaki has reportedly been readmitted to the Nairobi Hospital barely two weeks after he was discharged from the same facility.
The Star reports that Kibaki, 88, was driven back to the hospital on Monday evening and was admitted to the VIP wing, where he is being attended by a team of doctors.
A source from the private medical facility told the publication that he was readmitted over the same condition he was treated for during the previous admission.
“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,” the source who spoke on condition of anonymity told The Star.
Kibaki was admitted to the same hospital on June 19th after he complained of pain in the lower abdomen, which was allegedly caused by an infection.
“Only a top nurse, specific doctor(s) and his personal doctor are allowed to attend to him. Even his details are not registered at the hospital,” the source added.
Kibaki has maintained a low-profile since he handed over power in 2013 and is rarely seen in public.
For the first time in several months, Kibaki appeared in public in February this year when he was driven to parliament to view the body of his predecessor, former President Daniel Arap Moi. Moi died at the Nairobi Hospital on February 4th aged 95.
