Retired President Daniel Moi’s spokesperson has broken his silence following the death rumours that have swamped social media platforms.
Lee Njiru, on Thursday evening, addressed the matter head on by giving clarity in regards to the condition the former president is in.
The stern faced Njiru noted that, speculations reporting the second Head of State had already passed away, were fake.
He affirmed that Moi was still in hospital undergoing treatment.
On Monday, the ailing Moi was rushed to Nairobi Hospital for a second time in two weeks , in what was termed to be a routine checkup.
“It is true Mzee Moi went to the Nairobi Hospital today but it is a routine medical check-up.”
“It is prudent and advisable that everybody go for a medical check-up, so Mzee Moi went for a medical check-up,” remared the spokesperson.
Njiru asserted that Moi was breathing on his own after being taken off life support.
It was reported that the once head of KANU developed a lung complication which made it difficult for the old man to breath.
