Kenya: Retired President Moi Admitted at Nairobi Hospital for Check Up


Retired Head of State to be hospitalised for a couple of nights normal routine check-up, personal physician says.

Former President Daniel Arap Moi has been admitted at the Nairobi Hospital.

His physician Dr David Silverstein said that it was a normal routine check-up and that the former Head of State will be hospitalised for a couple of nights.

This the physician said will help the doctors get enough time to carry out their investigations.


In March this year, President Moi was flown to Tel- Aviv Israel for check-up on his knee.

A statement by the Kenyan Government then said that he was there for a routine medical check-up which was termed as being "successful."

The statement was issued after word went round that he had passed on.

The former president turned 94 on September, a ceremony which he celebrated in a private function at his Kabarak home in Nakuru County.


The problem with his knee began on July 30, 2006 after he was involved in an accident in Limuru.

He had been travelling to Kabarak from Machakos, where he had presided over a graduation ceremony at Scotts Theological College.

On January 27, 2017 the former president underwent a minor surgery on his knee at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi.
