Former President Daniel arap Moi has been re-admitted to the Nairobi Hospital just days after he was discharged.

A statement released by the former President’s press secretary Lee Njiru confirmed that Moi has taken back to hospital on Saturday, November 9 for “routine medical check-up.”

Njiru added that Moi is alert and being attended to by a professional medical team led by his personal physician Dr David Silverstein.

“He is in a VIP wing, a homely setup, to facilitate continual checkups and necessary treatment. I appeal to the press fraternity not to cause unwarranted alarm by exploiting the credulity of the masses,” said Njiru.

The former president was discharged last week on Thursday after two weeks in hospital.

Moi was allowed to go back home after his medical team, led by his personal physician Dr. David Silverstein gave him “a clean bill of health.”

He had been admitted for an illness that has not been disclosed.

Last week, the Moi family dismissed reports that Kenya’s second president was in critical condition saying that though he had been rushed to hospital, he was “alert and conscious of his surroundings.”
