19 January 2015, 18:54 William Korir

Nairobi - Kisumu East MP Shakeel Shabbir has been admitted in hospital suffering from severe food poisoning, his party ODM has said.

The MP was admitted to hospital Monday with a bad stomach ache and diarrhea.

He did not seem perplexed over the matter but speaking on phone from his bed at the Aga Khan hospital in Kisumu, he said he was being cautious after recent incidences where key party officials have died mysteriously.

" I am in hospital and have been admitted and there are tests ongoing. I hope it is not serious but the reality is that after recent incidences, I just wanted to be sure," he said of his stay in hospital.

The death of party leader Raila Odinga's son Fidel has raised panic levels within the party and key officials.

ODM had earlier confirmed that Shabbir was in hospital.
