Retired President Daniel Moi has been rushed to hospital for anal surgery.
Sources said that the former President of Kenya developed complications in releasing waste materials from his body forcing his aides to seek medical assistance at Nairobi Hospital. Earlier last week, medics had advised the 95-year-old Moi to take stool softeners such as Colace and fiber supplement to soften formed stools.
Moi’s doctor, Dr. David Silverstein is yet to confirm the seriousness of the condition.
In March 2018, Moi was flown to Israel following “an uncomfortable knee.”
On January 27, 2017, he underwent minor surgery on the knee at Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi.
In December 2018, the former head of State was admitted to The Nairobi Hospital in what Dr. Silverstein said was a routine medical examination for a few nights.
He was discharged from the facility days later after his medical gave him a clean bill of health following the check-ups.
On March 11, 2018, the former president left the country for Israel for a medical check-up.
Mr Moi had been booked at the hospital for the check-up on his knee which was said to have been giving him discomfort.
Moi took over as Kenya’s second president following the death of founding President Jomo Kenyatta in 1978.
He joined active politics in 1955, being selected to the colonial Legislative Council, famously known as Legco, to represent Rift Valley region.
