Former President Mwai Kibaki’s wife, Lucy Kibaki will spend more days in hospital after after advice from doctors at Nairobi Hospital after being admitted on Friday, March 11 at 5am.
According to reports, former President Mwai Kibaki’s press secretary Mr Ngare Gituku, said that Mrs Kibaki’s health had improved but doctors recommended she remains at the health facility.
“She is responding well to treatment and the doctors want to conduct a series of tests to ascertain that there is absolutely no issue that would crop up at any given time,” the Nation quoted Mr Gituku.
“As you many know, some tests require 48 hours for results to come out. They (doctors) would like to be with her especially being a weekend so that they can do that properly,” the family spokesman added.
“This is to ensure that every parameter they are interested in is interrogated properly so that when she is released, doctors will have confidence that she is okay,” the source continued.
The former First Lady has been withdrawn from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where she was taken in last week, will reportedly be in hospital for two or three days, though information on her illness remains scanty.
Mrs Kibaki had remained away from the public eye for nearly five years, until Friday when she was reported to have been admitted to hospital in Nairobi.
