Mwai Kibaki flown to SA for treatment

22 August 2016, 12:00

Nairobi - Former Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki was flown to South Africa Sunday evening for treatment.

The retired president, 85, was initially admitted at the Karen Hospital in Nairobi after falling ill at his home in Muthiga estate.

He spent the whole day at the Hospital before being flown outside the country for specialised treatment.

The family has confirmed the hospitalization report and asked Kenyans to pray for him.

"We expect him to return soon, and Kenyans will be informed of his progress as appropriate," a statement from the family said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta visited the former leader at Karen hospital on Sunday, even as Kenyans took to social media to pour their messages of goodwill.

Former Prime Minister, who ruled with Kibaki during his second and last term in office in the grand coalition government Raila Odinga, said: "Ida Odinga (his wife) and I send good wishes to the former President HE Mwai Kibaki & his family following his hospitalisation."

Nairobi Senator, Mike Sonko posted a prayer for the quick recovery of the retired President on his Facebook timeline.

Here are other messages from Kenyans:
