Former charismatic cabinet minister and Kiharu MP has been admitted at the Karen Hospital in critical condition. The 72 year old sickly politician, who took a long break from active politics, is said to have been flown from Mombasa to Nairobi after developing breathing complications.
According to his nephew, George Gachugu, the once fiery politician was admitted a Mombasa hospital before he was referred to Nairobi after his condition worsened. The politician’s political fortunes went on the down low after suffering a stroke while he was in detention during Moi oppressive reign.
He was jailed alongside Raila Odinga, Charles Rubia, and Koigi Wamwere.
