Defiant Wetangula hits referendum trail after scare

07 November 2014, 13:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD principal Moses Wetangula will take a much needed break after nearly collapsing on a plane but hit the referendum trail immediately after being discharged from hospital.

Wetangula joined CORD leader Raila Odinga on the streets of Kisumu to campaign for the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign immediately after his release.

It is understood though, that he will take a short break as ordered by doctors.

The CORD principal is suffering from fatigue, it has emerged, following his near collapse on a flight to Kisumu.

Wetangula developed breathing problems just before arrival in Kisumu and was quickly rushed to hospital for treatment, Friday morning.

The Senator was admitted but later on discharged from the Aga Khan Hospital in Kisumu, after doctors confirmed he was fatigued and needs thorough rest.

The hospital’s superintendent Dr Sammy Oula said that Wetangula was suffering from trauma and fatigue after frequent travels.

" Initial signs show it is fatigue and nothing more. We are looking at him closely and will report back on any new development, even though unlikely, he said.

Wetangula has recently had a tight schedule, criss-crossing the country and continent in recent weeks, most recently coming back from a trip to Morocco Thursday.

And following his predicament, he will retire for a much needed rest, as ordered by doctors.

" He has been discharged and will go on to rest as he has been told by his doctors. It was nothing totally serious but he will be fine after a rest is taken, an aide told News24.

CORD leader Odinga was at the hospital with Wetangula as are other senior politicians from the coalition, including Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale and MP Paul Otuoma.
