Moi in hospital over back pains


By Caroline Mango

Former President Moi was on Monday admitted to Nairobi Hospital.

His doctor, Dr David Silverstein, said the former president had been suffering from severe back pains since Saturday.

Silverstein said the former President woke up on Monday with severe lower back pains prompting his admission to hospital.

The physician, however, said Moi was upbeat and in high spirits and that they expected he would be discharged by on Wednesday.

“He has received medication and we will need to conduct an investigation and also carry out intensive physiotherapy. Otherwise, his general health is superb,” said Silverstein.

Mois Press Secretary, Mr Lee Njiru, told The Standard that a strain the former President suffered earlier triggered the back pains.

“Mzee Moi was admitted for investigation, observation and treatment. He will be in hospital for at least two days,” added Njiru.

One of Mois sons, Philip, spent the better part of Monday morning with him at the hospital.
